let's get right to nbc's miguel almaguer. good morning to you. >> reporter: savannah, good morning. in the next day or two firefighters hope to know more about what happened on the day so many died here. as they search for answers, a community grieves. the 19 fallen firefighters gave their lives to protect their community. >> the city of prescott lost, the state of arizona and the nation. these were the best. they were on call to go anywhere. >> reporter: 14 of the victims were in their 20s. young men who were starting families, pursuing their dreams and were in the prime of their lives. >> i was very proud of him. he was a good kid. and he's going to be so missed. >> reporter: last night, baseball's arizona diamondbacks wore black arm bands and unveiled special yarnell jerseys for the 19 fallen men. the hot shot team from prescott was caught in the middle of a
violent fire storm. when emergency crews reached the team, it was too late. their fire shelters couldn't protect them as flames quickly closed in. >> this was their backyard. for fire to overrun the entire crew has all of us scratching our head and wondering what happened. >> reporter: with the yarnell hill fire still raging out of control this morning, fire officials now believe an estimated 50 homes were destroyed. but the loss in prescott isn't measured in property. instead, in lives. this somber salute, a convoy of coroner vans carrying the body of the victims. >> if this day on the line i should lose my life, lord bless my hotshot crew, my children, and my wife. >> reporter: a community paying tribute to a young and fearless team that will never come home.
the hotshot crew that perished belonged to a group of 20. the sole survivor was said to be in the unit's vehicle and was not injured by the fire. meantime, this blaze has scorched some 8,000 acres. it is on the move and threatening some 200 homes. savannah, back to you. >> miguel almaguer, thank you. julian ashcraft's husband was one of the firefighters that died on sunday. juliann good morning to you. >> good morning savannah. >> let me start by saying how sorry we are to hear of your loss. you have little kids. this must come as such a shock. how are you doing? >> well, it's a sad day but we're hanging in there. we have a lot of support from the community. a lot of support from the other wives going through the same thing and we're doing the best we can. just one day at a time. >> i know one of the reasons you're here talking to us this morning is because you want everybody to know what a
wonderful man your husband was. what would you want people to learn about him? >> not just him, all the 19 men that lost their lives and of course i'm partial and i love dearly and miss dearly my husband and the father of my children. he was the most amazing man. best person i know. a contagious smile, a heart of gold. that's why he chose to do what he did and work where he worked. he wanted to protect the community he lived in and loved. and the 19 men, all of them, they really bonded together. and i want people to know that in our time of mourning we want people to know they were heros. they are heros. they were heros in our homes, in our community, and the people they helped spare and our kids remember them as heros as well. >> they were really the elite of the elite and i know your husband in particular was rookie of the year in 2011. this is incredibly dangerous work.
it goes without sa. what did it mean to him to be on the front lines, to help people? >> it was everything to him. outside of the love he shared for his family members, hotshot firefighting was his life. he had his priorities in line but when he was there he would tell me they say jump and i say how high. the main goal was to save lives. it was a blessing it came on the end when so many things were done by the hotshots. our community was so proud of them and we're still so proud of them. it means everything to the way people have reached out. they loved what they did. these men worked together. they lived together. they fought fires together, and they died together doing what they love. >> i know on sunday you exchanged a text message with
your husband in the late afternoon and it may have been -- >> yes. >> -- just a couple hours before he passed. can you share with us what he said? >> sure. we had a series of text messages throughout that morning. he let me know that they had been assigned to the fire in yarnell. at that point they were focusing more on people's valley. he let us know he loved us and missed us already which was a common thing for him to do when he would go on a fire. because of the dangers of the job he would always tell us he loved us. he got to the fire and i had gone to church with our four children and our oldest son gave a talk in church this past sunday that he was sad that he missed so he messaged me and told me to let him know he was proud of him. he said along the same lines that he was missing our family and that for whatever reason that this fire was wild and he said it looked like people's valley was starting to burn and
obviously the goal is for them to avoid any structure on fire. so it was wild he said. and i sent him pictures of what we were doing and the kids swimming and he sent me a photo back of where he was sitting and what the fire looked like for them from their lunch spot and it still did not look at catastrophic as it turned out to be, but it was interesting to have that perspective, to know what life was like for him on the fire lines and what he risked day in and day out. he got back to me and said i wish i was in the swimming pool. he also followed it up. i told him through our text messages that our daughter had been saying, when he was watching the thunderstorm she said daddy needs to see this and i let him know via text message she had said that. he said we could sure use rain over here. that was the last i heard from him. i sent a reply that said will you be sleeping out there
tonight? and of course there was no reply. they all laid out there that night. >> you have our love and our sympathy and greatest admiration. we wish you the best. thank you for sharing his story and the story of the other firefighters who were so brave. we really appreciate it. >> thank you. they are heros. >> you know savannah, you look at the photographs of the family. andrew, 29 years old. four children, none of whom are older than the age of 6. z they need a lot of help from the community and their family but a very strong woman this morning. >> beautiful family. >> it was so important for her to let the world know about him and his colleagues and how special they were and what they did and she said it, they died fighting to protect people. that's what they were all about and they have our hearts this morning. that is for sure. >> what courage, though, to hear her words and, wow, just to be
able to speak like that and really represent the best of what they're going through right now. >> there are 18 more stories just like that one, unfortunately. we turn to other news this morning, a rare meeting between president obama and former president george w. bush overnight as the president wraps up his trip to africa. chuck todd is there in tanzania for us. chuck, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, willie. you know, it's rare for two presidents to be in washington at the same time. rare, still for them to be at the same event but here we are some 8,000 miles away from the west wing in tanzania and there stood president obama and bush who were here to pay tribute to some of the first americans killed by an osama bin laden lead terrorist attack. walking side by side presidents obama and bush together in tanzania at the u.s. embassy for a ceremony. a moment of silence to honor the victims of the 1998 al qaeda

president. in these jobs when the pressure is so much and there's so much coming at them, i come to realize there has to be a soft place to land. >> exactly. >> there has to be a place when they walk in that door and no one else but dad or sweetheart. >> president obama's final event here in africa, a tour of a power plant with the tanzanian power plant. the soccer ball seemed to give him the biggest kick. >> mechanism inside so the kinetic energy when you kick it all day essentially brings a better. >> this is the legacy president obama hopes is left here by him a decade from now. his power africa initiative he hopes people look back and say this obama initiative helped turn the lights on in rural communities. the president is back home. he will have a fourth of july celebration at the white house, willie and it's off to camp
willie. he is still in moscow so far with nowhere to go. he's lashing out at the obama administration. jim, is his bid for asylum in russia on or off? >> hi, natalie. it was on. now it appears to be off. he applied for asylum on sunday. monday putin said snowden could only stay here if he stops with
his leaks. he has reconsidered and withdrawn his request. mean what time, snowden has applied for asylum in at least a dozen other countries. in his first statement here, he accused the obama administration of using citizenship as a weapon by canceling his u.s. passport. a justice department spokeswoman said he remains a u.s. citizen and america is willing to take him back. >> thank you. egypt is on edge once again this morning following days of unrest. now an ultimatum to the president. richard engel is in cairo. a lot of uncertainty there once again. there are frequent power cuts on employment rising. opposition members say instead of focusing on these national priorities morsi has been instead trying to impose an islamic agenda. he has his own supporters, in fact. they are planning on holding 50 of their own demonstrations today. what's new this time is the egyptian army is intervening and saying unless this crisis is resolved in the next 30 hours or so, the army will step in and impose its own road map. what that means remains unclear. but morsi says the army is threatening a coup. a close call 14,000 feet in the air. spirit airlines plane was forced into a sharp dive over southeast michigan sunday after it came

allowed to leave the 7x10 foot cell for three hours a day to use the exercise yard, phone, and common area. no direct contact with other inmates. his safety is a concern but so far there's no threats. >> just have to pay close attention to the fact that he is a high-profile person and keep a close ear to the ground. >> reporter: outside the jailhouse, new england patriots have an offer for any fan with an 81 jersey. turn it in and get another for a player that will be on the team this fall. other fans are putting them on ebay. one sold for $1,000. the seller just wanted it out of the house. hernandez pled not guilty to first-degree murder and multiple gun charges. he is accused of orchestrating the execution of odin lloyd with two other men at his side. one of those men, ernest wallace turned himself in to police in florida after massachusetts police posted a wanted alert with his picture. >> he's charged with accessory
after the fact. >> reporter: in court, wallace did not fight his extradition to massachusetts, where he'll likely be arraigned this week on an accessory to murder charge. the other man, carlos ortiz, is being held without bail after pleading not guilty to a legal weapons possession. so far the only person charged with odin lloyd's murder is hernandez. raising the possibility that ortiz and wallace may cooperate with prosecutors in exchange for lesser charges says legal expert david schwartz. >> you testify and you testify to what you saw that night and the eyewitness testimony on the part of ortiz and on the part of wallace will make the prosecutor's case. >> reporter: former patriot's wide receiver deon branch spoke to a newspaper defending hernandez. he says he's a great guy and close friend and he hopes he didn't have anything to do with this murder. back to you guys. >> stephanie gosk, thank you so much. >> let's get a check of the weather from maria larosa, who's

is your problem homie. >> reporter: these statements recorded the night of trayvon martin's death. >> i said, help me, help me, he's killing me. and he puts his hand on my nose and on my mouth and says you're going to die tonight. >> reporter: zimmerman went on to say trayvon martin tried to smash his head in the concrete. three days laider, lead detective chris serino and investigator doris singleton sat down with zimmerman again. >> when he walked up to your car, why didn't you say anything to him. >> i guess fear. i didn't want to confront him. >> reporter: and later with the video off but the audio still recording, they challenged zimmerman's assertion that he shot martin in self-defense. >> you wanted to catch him. you wanted to catch the bad guy. >> reporter: zimmerman's answer, no. he pled not guilty to second-degree murder. at one point, serino bluffed him
telling him there was a video of what happened that february night. >> i believe his words -- i was hoping somebody would video tape it. >> reporter: defense attorney mark o'mara continued. >> the fact that george zimmerman said to you thank god i hope somebody did videotape the event or the whole event, what -- his statement, what did that indicate to you? >> either he was telling the truth, or he was a complete pathological liar, one or the two. >> reporter: serino's conclusion -- >> you think he was telling the truth? >> yes. >> reporter: as we go live to the courtroom, detective serino is now back on the stand testifying. the detective had prepared an arrest affidavit to charge george zimmerman with manslaughter, but no arrest was ever made. a special prosecutor later assigned to the case brought the charges that led to this second-degree murder charge. >> in sanford, kerry sanders. thank you. lisa bloom is our legal analyst. good morning. >> good morning.
>> the jury hears, audio, video, n court. what inconsistencies did you hear? >> there were a number of them. the biggest one goes to was he following trayvon martin. sometimes he says he was but then one said no i wasn't. i was going to see the name of the street. even though he lives there, there's only three streets in the gated community and he's the neighborhood watch coordinator. >> inconsistencies are a problem enough to undermine the case? >> that's for the jury to decide. there are a number of them. he also says trayvon martin jumped out from the bushes. there are no bushes in the area. ultimately, detective serino, at the end of his testimony, said i believe him. i believed his story of self-defense. so even though there are a number of inconsistencies, the toughest investigator on the case believed george zimmerman. >> serino also went on to say, he's the lead investigator, he didn't consider zimmerman's injuries to be life threatening. does that undermine zimmerman's case he acted in self-defense? >> that certainly helps the prosecution.
by the way, i think yesterday was the best day for the prosecution. the jurors saw zimmerman even on a videotape having to answer hard questions and squirming a bit. the fact the injuries were only a few cuts, bumps and bruises does undercut his story. >> a lot of times in a self-defense case, the defendant takings the stand. if you're george zimmerman's attorney, do you put him on the stand? >> no way, no how. most attorneys i talk to say why subject him to a cross-examination when the jury has heard his story? i think the only way he takes the stand is if he insists. it's his right. this is a guy who likes to talk. he talked to the police multiple times. he even stands up in court every time somebody identifies him. i've never seen that before. >> we shall see. lisa bloom, thanks so much. >> thank you. coming up next, do you have trouble getting tickets to a big concert? why it's become so hard for the average fan to get seats to the hottest shows. and in trending, if you were like millions of americans who loved "the bible" mini series, we have good news for you this

sales. when you try to buy seats from our favorite artists, do you wonder why they sell out so quickly? the answer may surprise you. jeff rossen is here to explain. good morning. can't wait to hear this. >> we've all been affected by this. you're a huge maroon 5 fan, or pink, maybe your kids want to see justin bieber.
either way, the minute tickets go on sale, you go online credit card ready and you're shut out. entire arenas sold out like that. where do those tickets really go? this morning, we're pulling back the curtain to show you who is really getting those seats. they're the hottest tickets in town, from bieber, to pink, to one direction. seeing one direction would be a dream come true. for this girl, 11-year-old jayden. so her mom tried to surprise her going online to buy tickets the second they went on sale. >> 10:00 claimed i pressed for first available. sorry no tickets available. it's become impossible for the average person to get tickets. >> so what's really going on here? john potter is with a fans
rights group funded by stub hub and what he found may stun you. by the time tickets officially go on sale, most may already be unavailable. >> a huge percentage of the tickets will have already been sold before you have a chance to buy the two they want. >> who is getting them? >> the high end credit card holders that get the e-mail, they're giving them to the fan club and many go to the artist or to the venue. >> and he says the numbers for many concerts are staggering. for a one direction show in new jersey this month box office records show at least 64% of tickets were held back or sold to special groups. unavailable to everybody else. then there's maroon 5. at a recent concert, same thing. 64% earmarked for vips and special groups and even higher
for pink. for her concert at new jersey's izod center, at least 77% of tickets were reserved for those special groups. the rest of the public had to fight for what's left. but the most dramatic example is justin bieber. at his concert in fresno, california, 92% of tickets went to special groups or were held back entirely. that means of more than 12,000 seats, only 940 were set aside for the official sale date. >> this is very secretive. there's only a few people in the room when they decide who is going to get tickets. they don't want us to know that artists are holding back tickets and venues are holding back tickets. >> none of the artists would comment for the story but live nation told us free sales are open to the public and fans can participate in easily accessible ways. but critics say they're not being open with the fans. >> we're going to get shafted as
usual. >> the new jersey congressman says this industry is out of control. now he has drafted legislation for government oversight. >> what i want is that people will know ahead of time how many tickets are going to go on sale for the general public. >> you want transparency. >> that's what we don't have right now is transparency. >> but tour promoters are fighting it saying being more open would only help the scalpers. the congressman is trying to stop them too. making it illegal for professional scalpers to use high-tech computer programs to snatch up hundreds of tickets. >> thousands of tickets i don't have a chance at and you don't have a chance at. >> i have to buy it from a jacked up price from the broker. >> that's what's happening. right now. give us some protection. that's what i'm talking about. >> a lot of fans will be furious or if you're a bieber fan, heart broken. what are you supposed to do? >> we've had a lot of e-mails from viewers complaining about the story so that's why we ended
up doing it. we have ways you can increase your odds of getting a ticket. if you want to see an artist in concert join their fan club. it's usually free to sign up online. that gives you access to some of the held back tickets and puts you in a special group. be flexible. wait until the day before the show to buy the seats. two reasons, some of those held back tickets that aren't used may end up back at the box office and for sale last minute and if you're looking online the prices drop close to the show as brokers try to unload the tickets. the prices go down. if you're flexible, wait. >> this story idea came from viewers. so write in if you have a story idea. >> love it. >> thank you so much. coming up, do you look sad or angry for no reason? perhaps you suffer from what we will just call brs. we will meet the woman behind a psa that has gone viral. it's got people talking. don't tell her to smile. but first, these messages. le.
