the one-handed swipe and there's your bat man. nicely done. that's sports. more people are going to great lengths for cheaper medical care. hln expert clark howard tells us a simple plane ride can really cut medical costs. if you don't have health insurance, or you are underinsured, where you need non-emergency treatment or surgery, that is very, very expensive in the united states, do you know there's an alternative to financial ruin? in fact ""barron's"" magazine reports it's booming. go overseas to a western style hospital, you have 24-hour nursing in your room, you get the equivalent surgical procedure but the bill is one-fifth to one-tenth the cost of what it is in the united states.
9:06 am
this is known as, believe it or not, medical tourism. and it's become big business in thailand, singapore and india. but before you go overseas for surgery, you got to know, you're going to have a big distance from your family and you got to really check out the facility and the doctors who would provide the treatment. it could keep you from being broke. i'm clark howard. for more money saving tip goes to cnn.com/clarkhoward. >> for more ways to save more, spend less and avoid getting ripped off stay with us for the "clark howard show" at noon eastern right here on hln.

welcome back to hln. a bit of controversy in game three of the world series last night. larry smith is here to explain what happened. >> the yankees gain the benefit of instant replay used for the first time in a world series game last night. here's what happened. alex rodriguez hit what is appears to be a run-scoring double. but umpires check the replay and that showed the ball actually ricochetting off of a tv camera behind the wall. so they get together, talk about it and the ruling, it's a home run. new york winning the game 8-5, leading the series two games to one. more sports in a few minutes. history in philly. the only challenger in the afghan presidential race is pulling out. abdullah abdullah says next saturday's run-off will be as rigged as the first round of voting. he explained it this way. >> the only way to decide in this country will be through free and fair elections, so my message is loud and clear to the enemies of democratic process

and through commitment to these principles and values we will disappoint anybody who would like to become an obstacle to us, the process. >> hundreds of thousands of votes were tossed out in the first round because of massive fraud. president hamid karzai won it but couldn't avoid a runoff. secretary of state hillary clinton said the race would be legitimate even if abdullah quit. a senior administration official says that the white house supports a credible process, not any particular candidate. police in cleveland are checking missing persons reports dating back to june of 2005. they are trying to learn the identity of the decomposing corpses found in this man's home. anthony sowell was arrested on rape and assault charges yesterday. when police went to his home to arrest him they found the six bodies inside and outside. police say two of the corpses are black females and that one of them died a violent death.
9:23 am
sowell was released from prison in 2005 after serving 15 years for rape. you heard a lot about the so-called public option and the house version of the health care legislation. well, the congressional budget office estimates only 2% of americans under the age of 65 would use that option. the cbo also estimates the vast majority of americans would keep their private insurers if the house bill becomes law even though the cbo is a nonpartisan economic analyst the health insurance industry is questioning the findings. treasury secretary timothy geithner says the economic recovery could be choppy. in an interview that airs today he said it will take a while for the economy to come back. he said this crisis hurt the economy a lot, so it's taking time to fix that and they are encouraging signs in the economy but he refused to say whether the recession is over. he said the real test of recovery is bringing back jobs and investors' confidence. president obama celebrated halloween the same way many of some 2,000 kids came to the

white house with their parents and mr. obama doled out presidential m & ms, dried fruit and butter cookies made by a white house chef. first lady michelle obama wore cat ears and a top with a leopard pattern. mr. obama called her a very nice looking catwoman. the first couple held a reception for military families in the white house. two men allegedly involved with a radical islamist group have an extradition hearing in canada tomorrow. they were arrested in winsor, ontario yesterday morning. a two-year investigation by the fbi alleges they conspired to commit federal crimes. their arrests came days after a shoot-out with the fbi in detroit. the son of an imam killed in that shooting was also arrested in winsor. police in seattle say one of their officers was shot and killed last night. our seattle affiliate reports it was a training officer who was killed. he was in a car with a female

rookie officer when a car pulled along side and opened fire. king says the rookie was wounded but managed to fire several shots as the car backed away and left the scene. this is the first seattle police officer to be killed in the line of duty since 2006. even as hope dims of finding any survivors, rescuers are searching the waters off southern california for a third straight day today. overnight thursday, a coast guard plane collided with a marine helicopter. witnesses say that a massive fireball fell into the pacific ocean after the collision. nine people on board the two aircraft are now feared dead. the coast guard says all nine had access to heat-retaining dry suits and were in excellent physical shape. there were problems with halloween night as far as the world series goes. we're talking a lot of rain. what about today? how is it looking? reynolds wolf joins us with more.

>> looks like it is going to be a little bit better. if you are a phillies fan, hopefully better than the three home runs the phillies gave up to the yankees on the way to the yankees winning. tonight conditions should be better. one of the issues last night of course were the scattered showers, still we see them moving through the philadelphia area. what we expect is for the frontal boundary to drive through. we expect for a little drier air to move into the area for the series. now, tonight for the series itself, we expect temperatures right in the 40s, a few scattered clouds, wind out of the north 3 to 6 and the first pitch around 8:20. meanwhile, for the rest of the nation what we can expect is the frontal boundary to make its way to the eastern seaboard, high pressure building into the ohio and tennessee valleys. pretty nice conditions, a lot of sunshine in a few places like the ohio valley. even back toward texas. but something else we can expect will be temperatures to be a little bit on the cool side in the great lakes with highs that are going to be mainly in the 50s, memphis with 63, 73 in dallas, 86 in phoenix, 68 in san francisco, 52 in billings and 55 in minneapolis.
