5:01 am
>> the scandal grows. >> a lot of people will just, i guess, say that this is boys being boys and boys will be boys, but they shouldn't be in positions of authority. >> the police and the fbi hope for a break in the 33-year-old disappearance of 6-year-old etan patz. >> we're cautiously optimistic we'll find evidence. >> the first missing child to appear on a milk carton. >> a chance for closure for a family whose son has been missing for 33 years. and in london are a birthday fit for a queen, for the oldest monarch in the history of great britain. those stories -- >> us airways has struck a deal with american airlines pilots, flight attendants and groundworkers to win their support for a possible merger with bankrupt american airlines. >> we have an embarrassment of riches. >> and so much more. >> he scores! ♪ go like this >> on "cbs this morning: ♪ go like this >> on "cbs this morning: saturday," april 21, 2012.
5:02 am
captioning funded by cbs that pizza kid is awesome. >> he has a good arm. i will give him that. >> he's so good. >> this morning we're also going to meet someone who is very good at turning tragedy into triumph. he was attacked by a shark, believe it or not, lost a hand and a leg, but then three months later he's back in the water, confronting his fears. he's back swimming with the sharks. >> incredible story. also this morning, the incredible julie andrews will be in studio talking about her career, what's next for her. we'll ask her what her favorite role is as well. you might be surprised. >> i loved her in "mary poppins". >> who didn't love her? coming up, the trayvon martin case, we begin with, and the imminent release of murder suspect george zimmerman.
5:03 am
mark strassmann is in sanford, florida, with the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. zimmerman is still behind bars at the jail here in sanford. while lawyers on both sides work out the conditions and security restrictions of that release. he's expected to post bond and leave the jail at some point this weekend. reopening the national debate about this shooting. george zimmerman was granted bond because judge lester was persuaded he was not a flight risk. despite zimmerman's killing of martin, thought he was of no threat to the community. >> i'm going to granted the motion of bond of $150,000. >> reporter: zimmerman surprised the courtroom, especially trayvon martin's stand, when he walked to the stand in shackles and apologized for shooting the unarmed teenager. >> i wanted to say i am sorry for the loss of your son. i did not know how old he was. i thought he was a little younger than i am. and i did not know if he was armed or not. >> reporter: zimmerman's lawyer
5:04 am
mark o'mara grilled one state investigator under stand. he said many prosecutors about the shooting they could not answer. >> do you know who started the fight? >> do i know? no. >> do you have any evidence that supports who may have started the fight? >> no. >> any evidence that conflicts, any eyewitnesss, anything, that conflicts with the contentious that mr. martin assaulted first? >> as to who threw the first blow, no. >> reporter: trayvon martin's parents left the hearing without comment, unhappy with zimmerman's bond and his apol y apology. >> the most unsincere thing i've seen. the most unmeaningful apology we've seen. >> he had always wanted to acknowledge what happened that day. i was hopeful that would be
5:05 am
accomplished in more private ways. we weren't afforded that opportunity. >> reporter: wherever he goes, zimmerman will have to meet certain restrictions. no alcohol, no drugs, no guns. he'll have a curfew and a gps ankle monitor and also allowed to have no contact with trayvon martin's family. >> mark strassmann in sanford, thank you. as mark reported, trayvon martin's parents, tracy martin and sybrina fulton, are very unhappy. at the prospect of george zimmerman being released from jail, even with all the restrictions ordered by the judge. let's talk about that with their attorney, benjamin crump, also in sanford this morning. good morning to you, ben. >> good morning, rebecca. >> so, i understand that trayvon martin's family are outraged by this decision to let zimmerman go free on bail. are they surprised by it? are you surprised by it, given the law and the precedence for this? >> well, they are very disheartened this morning.
5:06 am
we had prepared them for the real possibility the judge may give him jail. special prosecutor corey's office had also said. it's ee mowing alley hard. they were in the courtroom with the killer of their son yesterday. in a situation they would rather the killer of their child not be allowed to leave jail, but they understand the rule of law. they're just trying to deal with it as best they can. >> zimmerman's attorney has said is sybrina, trayvon's mother, asked to have a conversation with zimmerman himself. what did she want to talk about? >> well, she never asked that. >> she did not? >> yeah. a reporter asked her, do they think he should apologize? she said yes. when they contacted her, we said, this was not the appropriate time, but they disregarded the family's wishes and he got on the stand and grandstand for what we believe
5:07 am
very self-serving reasons and offered a very insincere apology. if he really wanted to apolog e apologize, he had 50 days. why does he wait until the day of his bail. george zimmerman, never once on that website did he say that i'm sorry for taking the life of trayvon martin. never did he show remorse in any of those police interviews. so, we just think his motives -- he had ulterior motives. >> would your client consider meeting with george zimmerman, not that this is going to happen, but would they take a meeting, accept an apology in person? >> you know, it's one of those things, jeff, that although tt t they want the legal process to play out. she's a christian woman. what they want is the truth. they think george zimmerman has lied to the police. he's given different versions of why he had to kill their unarmed teenage son.
5:08 am
before they can accept an apology, first he has to tell the truth. >> what do your clients want to see happen to george zimmerman? >> well, they want justice. as they said before, they don't want anything more, anything less. they accept the rule of law. they are being very calm and keeping their composure better than most people would be in this situation. and now they just want to get all the truth out. and if he killed their son, they want to be held accountable, just as trayvon martin would have killed george zimmerman. they don't want anything more, anything less. and the evidence, everything that they know, he shouldn't have killed their son. >> benjamin crump, thank you for joining us. we appreciate it. >> yes, ma'am. scandal rocking the secret service, it is spreading. the u.s. military says 11 service members are being investigated. so far they have not been charged or placed in detention.
5:09 am
more secret service agents have stepped down. bill plante is in washington with more on that this morning. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. that's right, three more secret service agents have now resigned in the wake of that prostitution scandal in cartagena, colombia, last weekend. an additional agent is under investigation and one more has been cleared of serious misconduct. these latest departures after several days of lie detector tests and interviews followed the dismissal earlier in the week of two supervisors. david cheney, was a member of sarah palin's protective detail during the 2008 campaign. greg stokes was dismissed but has the option to appeal. a third agent resigned. agency officials briefed lawmakers on capitol hill friday as investigators in cartagena continued their attempt to contact all of the women who came to the hotel caribe last week before the president's arrival in colombia. new york post and new york daily
5:10 am
news have identified this woman as the one whose dispute over payment ignited the incident. neighbors at this gated community told cbs news it was her luggage being loelded into two taxis friday. an additional member of the u.s. armed forces group, which was with the secret service, white house also now under investigation, bringing the number of the military to 11. none have yet been charged. now, the white house has tried to keep its distance from this scandal even as some republicans have tried to call this and the other embarrassments out there a failure of presidential leadership. but on friday afternoon, president obama did call in the director of the secret service for a face-to-face meeting, their first. jeff? >> bill plante in washington, thank you. american airlines is fighting to stop a hostile takeover. us airways wants to merge with american and even has the support of three of american airlines' most powerful unions. but american airlines, currently in chapter 11, says it wants to
5:11 am
come out of bankruptcy as a stand-alone company. joining us now with more on what this merger could mean for travelers, because that's important in all of this, jason cochran, writer and new york post. thank you for joining us. seems like this deal may get done but possibly not overnight. >> no, it will take a long time. because the government has to get involved and make sure there are no trust issues, and americans also want wants its own go. they say right now they want to be an independent airline but maybe not going to happen that way because its own unions want to go with us airways. >> you bring up the unions. this was a very important part, doug parker, ceo of us airways, he's tried multiple times and failed to get other airlines to team up with him. he's tried to take them over. he said the key is getting the unions on board. >> and he's got the key. yesterday they signed an agreement that says they would like to work with us airways, go under american umbrella.
5:12 am
and be one big airline. five years ago we had eight major airlines. if this goes through, it would take a year and a half or more to go through, we would have essentially four. and the reduction of competition is going to have some effect to consumers. >> what do you think it will be, those next? >> after the delta/northwest merger, some scholars at university of california-irvine said smaller airports, airfares went up a little bit. at larger hub airports, not so much, but smaller airports get hurt a lot more. it's simply free market 101. with fewer competitors, there's less to hold down the prices. an airline can raise prices without anyone else coming at them with competition. >> a lot of people are worried about what happens to their mileage here. what happens to their frequent flier programs. >> a big question mark because us airways is with star alliance and american is with one world. two different group and two different networks of airline. it remain to be seen what's going to happen and which
5:13 am
airline will win out on the alliance front. also, there are going to be fewer seats flying because one airline goes away, a lot of routes can be reduced, at least some runs can be reduced, so fewer seats going. fewer seats going, getting frequent flier miles redeemed is not as easy. >> much more difficult. jobs are important, clearly, to the economy overall. and certainly to the unions involved here. american originally said 13,000 job cuts would happen in its bankruptcy to union employees. are the union employees actually going to get a better deal, will fewer jobs be lost if us airways does this? >> no america means no jobs, that's 55,000 people among three unions who made this agreement. yes, it will save some jobs, not all. again, sop of these flights will be reduced. it would be a good deal for them. they're so angry with american airlines, and this one reason they're going with us airways but it does save their jobs if
5:14 am
it goes through. >> as many -- >> many. not all. it's going to be a shakeout. they want to make profit. that's ultimately what it's about. they won't keep bloated. they want to scale up to be more nimble to compete against delta/northwest and other players continentally. scaling up will be better for business travelers because two-thirds of traveler are business travelers so it will help employees be a little happier and maybe your bags might get lost less frequently. >> we all like that. the race for the white house, right now it appears to be a neck and neck race between president obama and mitt romney. the poll this week by cbs news/"new york times" found each with support from 46% of registered voters. so, a race this close will likely boil down to 11 battleground states. with us from washington is cbs news political director john dickerson. good morning. always good to see you, sir. >> good morning, jeff. >> one of the reasons we're taking about these battleground
5:15 am
states is because the economy is so tenuous in some of these states. which candidate right now is in better shape when it comes to the economy? >> well, if you look at all of the polls, different ways you can look at that. if it's just a referendum on president obama, thumbs up or down, the president's in bad shape. people disapprove of his handling of the economy more than they approve of it. then if you look at which candidate is better to handle the question of the economy and jobs, it's closer there across the polls. although romney-m has a bit of an edge. in our poll, folks look at both candidates the same, although when you ask them who will do -- who will hurt your economic situation more, president obama comes out on the losing end of that. so, the sum here is that mitt romney has a bit of an edge on the economy question. >> when you look at this, what are the handful of states key to this election? >> well, there are four or five states really very important. ohio and florida, nevada and
5:16 am
colorado. and then there are -- and then you expand out from that, virginia and north carolina are potentially important. it really depends on the kind of route each candidates want to take. pennsylvania is very important. new mexico. and that's pretty much the group there. but there are really four or five that will be important. >> i can pin you down to name one in particular that you'll be watching most closely? >> well, you know, we always have to want to watch florida. it's a big prize. there's so much history there of it being so tight and so close. the unemployment rate there is 9%. the president hit very hard by the housing crisis. it looks very tough for the president there. so, if you had to look at a state, you would look at ohio, a traditional. bellwether. so goes ohio, so goes the nation. i'll say those two zot women's vote, a lot of talk about the women's vote recently.
5:17 am
are there states where the women's vote more importantly? >> if you look at a state like florida, the women vote is -- women represent about 53% of the electorate. that's the case in florida and ohio. it's an older women's vote in florida. mitt romney does better with older voters than slightly younger one. you look at the older women's vote in florida to see where romney might have an advantage. in a state like kol, the vote -- women's vot e is 50% in exit polls. >> after a bruising primary, he is ready for the general. john dickerson from washington, thank you very much. >> thanks, jeff. now, here's ra fwek ebecca. >> in afghanistan officials say they foiled a plot for a major attack by militants on kabul, the capital. they say five taliban fighters, afghans and pakistanis were arrested in connection with the plan. afghan security forces seized almost 11 tons of explosives,
5:18 am
hidden in a truckload of potatoes. northern mexico, another round of deadly drug-related violence. gunmen burst into a bar late yesterday and killed at least 14 people. it happened in the city of chihuahua, just south of the texas border. mexican authorities believe the killings are part of the ongoing turf war between rival drug cartels. a united nations spokesman says a team of peace monitors have arrived in the battered city of homs. syria state news agency says the observers have met with the governor in homs at center of resistance to the government of bashar al assad. they are said to be touring the city, which endured weeks of pounding by syrian artillery. and there's finally some, well, pretty good news for drivers this morning. gas prices are coming down, albeit by a bit. they've been climbing for months. lately hovering near $14 a gallon. in the last two weeks, prices have fallen, get this, six cents
5:19 am
a gallon. the national average of $3.88. experts predict they will fall another nickel or so in the next week. it is about 18 minutes past the hour. lonnie quinn is off this morning so john elliott from wcbs tv here in new york is here with our first check of the weather. at these prices, one can save about $1 to $2 per trip to the gas station. >> oh, boy. if you pay in cash, counted the savings. >> exactly. >> good morning. gas prices coming down, so is some rain. we have showers in the northern plains, thunderstorms, too. going to feel like summer out west. big ridge of high pressure. numbers 15 to 20 degrees above normal. after a dry spring, the northeast finally gets soaked. proof of that, radar and satellite. to the north, active system for the northern plain. this front stretches from the lakes to the gulf. we are going to see that bring heavy rain into parts of the northeast. that's a quick check of the national forecast. now here's a closer look at the weather for your weekend.

5:32 am
evidence. we do have good probable cause to be here. >> reporter: the 33-year-old case was reopened after cadaver dogs detected the scent of human remains at the site. o othneil miller used this space as a work shop. he knew etan and his family. he denies any involvement with the child's disappearance. >> after this case there became a much more protective environment around children generally. >> reporter: no suspect was ever charged in the case, but the boy's disappearance parked a movement that put pictures of missing children on milk cartons and spawned national organizations to coordinate efforts to find them. this was the case that years ago made parents reassess places they once judged safe. like their very own street and neighborhood. investigators plan to continue digging in the basement through the beginning of next week. john miller, cbs news, new york.
5:33 am
joining us now is the author of "after etan: the missing child case that held america captain". >> lisa cohen is a former producer for abc and cbs news. good morning. >> good morning. >> good to see you. 33 years later, why does this case remain so fascinating? >> this was the first case in a long, long time that just captured the imagination of, first this city, and then the rest of the country. ultimately the world. and i think that there was a time before etan when kids played in the street and you walked to the bus stop by yourself, two blocks, and then an after-etan. after that people knew that it could happen. once you know that it can happen, then you think maybe it will happen. it changed everything. >> you've written that etan's case has come to mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. what do you mean by that? >> i think that out of this
5:34 am
case, and then a few very few high-profile cases that followed, a whole movement began. and there were congressional hearing hearings, all kinds of niche tichs for tracking children in a better way and things like the national center for missing and exploited children were created. so, now there's a new awareness. and there's some divisiveness about this. on the one hand people say, we know the risk now. on the other hand, people say, weave taken away the freedom of our chirp. and people should be so nervous and worried and isolating. >> what are you hearing about what the family is finding and hoping to find? >> they're very reserved. they've been through this for 33 years. they have seen so many cases, so many moments where the hopes were up, they've got the guy, you know, they've got the break in the case. and then it doesn't happen. so, you know, i think that -- i
5:35 am
spoke to sam patz, he's grateful the new york city district attorney is willing to put resources into this, but he's going to wait and see. >> no charges have ever been filed. will there ever be charges filed? >> against jose ramos, the suspect in the case? >> yes. >> there's evidence that links him to the. boy. he said he took a boy who was 90% etan and took him to his apartment on that day and tried to molest him and let him go. he's linked him very clearly and other evidence as well. i don't think we should leap to conclusions that this means jose ramos is the person to look to. >> the focus now on othneil miller, the handyman, may be
5:36 am
based on circumstances not actual facts that link him to this crime? >> i wouldn't say that at all. at this point they haven't found anything. at this point they have no connection. they have not discussed publicly a connection between the two men, between the two sets of circumstances. it would be far to early to make that kind of speculation. >> we appreciate it. thank you for joining us this morning. move over to john elliott, who's in for lonnie quinn this morning. good morning to you. >> so many communities need rain and there is rain on the map. pressure bringing storms and rain to the northern plain and from the great lakes down to the ohio valley and into the gulf, we're dealing with dueling lows and a slow-moving front. the low pressure system to the south, troublesome in deed. dangerous lightning, talking about the possibility of gusty winds, maybe straight-line winds and isolated tornadoes. again, some of this energy works its way up the coast tomorrow. so, new england, new york, you need to be on the watch for that

tenth most diagnosed. it's the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths. average life expectancy is three to six months. so, these were not great statistics to go into this, but are we going to take this lying down? no. of course, he's going to fight. i tell you what, when you bring great attitude and, you know, optimistic hope to a situation, it's amazing what you can do. in fact, patrick did incredibly well, considering his diagnosis. >> you were married for 32 years. what else did you learn in those years? >> i learned what a tough guy he was. i always knew he was tough, but i had no idea. and what's interesting is that, you know, he's -- he's enormously talented, wonderful man, and he had a bit of an ego. he became very humble during his illness. where a lot of people get angry because it's a frightening, frightening thing, he became an
5:44 am
even better person. he became more kind, more loving. >> i have to say you're very outgoing, as we meet you here in person, you smile a lot, but you also talk in the book about how you're still recovering. part of the book is called moving forward. more than two years later. how are you moving forward? >> every chance i get, you know, moving forward is one foot in front of the other sometimes. as time has gone on, what they say is really true. everything becomes more manageable. it's not that you get over it. and, you know, i just recently came out of a real three-week slump where it was just like -- it was hideous. it was hoteltotally hideous. i feel good now. >> the purple pride event. >> our goal is to raise $500,000. we're going to walk, run, we're all going to be in purple. i'm going to cut the ribbon. i've always wanted to do that. now i get my chance.

welcome back to "cbs this morning: saturday", i'm jeff glor. >> i'm rebecca jarvis. >> we're talking about interesting issue. you may have seen the show "girls" on hbo, it's been brought out by "50 shade of grey," a lot of it, and that is the changing role of femininity, female -- >> there's a conversation going on about what's happening in women's minds and why are these things becoming so popular, so we'll discuss that with the author of an article on the topic in "newsweek." >> a very controversial cover of
6:01 am
"newsweek." we'll ask her about that. no reason to play nice when you are angry. all you need is a bat, some googles is an anger room. this is very appealing. i'm not going to lie. >> we're trying to install one of those. >> i have one in my apartment. and the jufl julie andrews is here on her favorite role. what is it? you might be surprised. and her latest book co-written with her daughter. the top story, the latest twist in the case of trayvon martin, the teenager shot and killed last month in sanford, florida. it appears the man accused of murdering him, george zimmerman, is about to be freed on bail. so, we'll get the latest from mark strassmann, who's in sanford. good morning again to you, mark. when is it likely that zimmerman will be released from jail? >> well, good morning, rebecca. it's a matter of when, not if. he is going to be released at some point. we're hearing presumably some time this week. they have to get bail together,
6:02 am
make security arrangements, get together different restrictions the judge placed upon his bond release at the hearing yesterday. once they get that together, then of course they have the other matter, which is how to get him out of jail and to a safe house and presumably a safe secret house where he can spend his time while he waits for trial. zimmerman, of course, has had death threats, a very well known figure, a divisive figure in this country. the idea, of course, once you get him out, is to keep him safe so that he can get back to the courthouse for the trial that probably is going to be months away. >> do we have any sense for where that safety area may be, can he go out of state under restrictions? >> that's part of the negotiation s where he's going to be. his lawyer wants him out of state because he's so well known, particularly here in florida. then it would be out of state, the lawyer -- mark o'mara was saying yesterday, the gps ankle monitor is a national device.
6:03 am
so, my sense of it is, it will be out of state, it will be a secret location. the idea being, let's get him someplace where he can stay out of sight and be safe. >> and also that this is going to be something that is drawn out over a long period of time. that he may be out of jail in the near term be but in longer term a court case, all of the deliberations that follow, will take months, even years. >> reporter: yes. and remember there's going to be a hearing in presumably three or four months where they'll go over the stand your ground, the first chance for a judge by himself could dismiss this case all together. that will be the next watershed moment. there will be a public arraignment next month, but the stand your ground hearing will be a big event. >> mark strassmann in sanford, florida, we appreciate it. now here's jeff with a quick look at the rest of this morning's headlines. >> thanks. new report says u.s. army is investigating drug use by american soldiers in

6:07 am
big birthdays. like 50, 60, 70. she's at windsor castle and having a quiet family lunch and then putting her feet up in the afternoon. i mean, not very exciting, but for her that is a bit of a relief. >> so, she has scaled back here a little bit as we talked about earlier sending other folks out on international trips. i assume that continues? >> yes. well, she's 86 and prince philip is 90. doing those overseas tours, the change in climate and the actual exhaustion of flying. she can't do it anymore. so, the family are doing it for her. she's working really hard here. >> and yet she's really hit the high point of her career, at 86. she's hit her stride, wouldn't you say? >> i don't think it's a career. i don't think he had she has any choice in it. she has to be queen. when she wakes up she's queen and the same at night. she can't get away from it. yes, i think she has hit her
6:08 am
high point. and i think she's really happy with -- she's dedicated her life to the monarchy. i think she sees the future of wills and kate and i think at last she can feel -- obviously her own child will take over but wills and kate are the future. and i think she feels that they are cured what she's done. >> how big of a thorn in her side is this whole pippa scandal, partying in paris and wild ways? obviously, the queen has tried to distance herself from pippa very publicly. but privately, isn't this becoming a big issue? >> it might be if it was you and me, but it really isn't with her. she doesn't do this moral confrontation. she reads the papers. she knows exactly what's going on. she'll know that pippa, you know, is in a spot of bother, but she will -- she will really -- she just won't deal with it. nor will anyone at buckingham palace, so pippa is really on
6:09 am
her own. the only person she's got on the inside to help her is her sister. >> but even if they're not publicly showing disapproval but there is some way the queen can or will communicate she doesn't like this. >> she would commute through her adviser, through her household, if you like. but she's not in the habit of telling people off that aren't actually members of the royal family. she's got enough family members to tell off without outsiders as well. she really will want have anything to do with this pippa scandal, if you like. >> on a happier note, are the rumors true about kate being with child? >> i read that in "people" magazine. no, i don't think so. >> you don't think so? >> i mean, would you want to be pregnant when you have to work so hard this year and all those things they have, the jubilee, and then as they're going on a tour in september to the congo.
6:10 am
you don't know how pregnancy is going to grab you. it might make her really ill. i don't think she's pregnant one moment. i think she'll be pregnant by the end of the year, but i don't think so now. >> how is philip doing? >> great. the operation he had has given him a new lease on life. he's on an up. let's just hope he stays there. >> glad to hear it. >> always good to speak with you. up next here, women and sex from hbo, the lifetime to "50 shades of grey" we'll take a look at how getting busy is getting ratings. >> that's what it says on the teleprompter. >> wow.

potter or "the hunger games" where get equally big amounts of attention, equal amount of people are buying them and stories with wizards and things like that that wouldn't in normal vd life be paying attention to such things. >> that's true. what strange about this -- it is sort of a harlequin romance, a badly written book, which i point out. writing is very painful. the fact these women are willing to plod through it, is interesting just on that level. why are we willing to tolerate such bad writing to get to these pretty watered down, you know, soft core sort of, slightly pornographic scenes. >> what are the ages of folks talking about this stuff right now? what are the ages of folks willing to talk about this snuff. >> there's a stereotype it was mommy porn and older suburban, midwestern demographics, but in fact it's women in their 20s and

6:34 am
write a couple pages and i thought, maybe this is a way to bond with her a little bit and try to write more as a small gift. >> and you never stopped. >> i enjoyed that so much and had the pleasure of having that little book published and i never stopped after that. i loved it. >> that was "manndy" 1971? >> the first book i published. the latest one is "the very fairy princess: the flower girl". >> this is a franchise my daughter emma and i started writing 15 years ago. it's a story -- it's the third in a series at the moment, of a little girl who's convinced she's a very fairy princess. despite evidence to the contrary, she has grubby fingernails and tears around, but somewhere her inner knowledge is that she's got some sparkle that tells her so.

6:37 am
problems with my voice. >> one door closes, another one opens. >> that's exactly right. >> do you have a favorite role? >> in terms of my work, no. every role is -- you either love it because of your location or your script or your director or how much you learn from something. but in general, i love being a grand mom, i have to tell you that. and i have eight grandchildren. >> julie andrews, thank you very much. >> thank you for inviting me. a pleasure to see you in your lovely studio. >> it is, isn't it? >> yes. >> julie's latest book "the very fairy princess" is available in target in hon i of princess week. a diver survived a shark attack and now he's heading back in the water. we'll tell you why he has no time for fear. you would be fearful? >> terrified. >> you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."

6:41 am
experience in "no time for fear." paul de gelder joins us this morning. good to see you. >> great to see you. >> nice to be here. >> thanks for being here. take us back to that day and tell me what happened. >> it was a february day, in australia just the end of summer. wasn't a hot day. a bit overcast. sydney harbour is quite murky in the water. i was just basically swimming on my back, kicking my legs in a wet suit. i looked over my left shoulder to make sure i was going in the right direction and before i even looked back, i just felt this big whack in my leg and didn't think too much of it. i looked down, staring into the eyes of a big bull shark attached to me. >> you knew it was a shark five seconds into it? >> pretty much. didn't strike me as a shark attack instantly because it didn't hurt. i didn't think -- >> it didn't hurt? >> it didn't hurt. i didn't feel the teeth go in. it was a bit of a shock. i felt the whack in the leg and i looked around thinking the
6:42 am
guys in the boat got a little too close. then i looked down and was shocked to see this massive shark attached to me. >> and you saw your hand was gone? >> actually i didn't initially. my panic system kicked in and i went to jab the shark in the eyeball with my hand. >> that wouldn't be most people's reaction, by the way. >> well, we've seen discovery channel, we've got "crocodile hunter," but when i went for the eyeball i couldn't see the hand. i had teeth marks down my wrist and i thought, okay, that's not going to work and decided to go with my left hand. i couldn't reach the eyeball so i decided to push it off. that did nothing. i punched him in the nose. that did nothing also. >> how long was he locked onto you for? >> for me it felt like five minutes but there is video footage of the shark attack. i think it only went for five to ten seconds. >> did you ever think i'm not going to make it through this? >> probably three instances that day where i definitely did not
6:43 am
think i was going to live. the first one being under water with the shark, shaking me around. i couldn't breathe. i'd run out of air from yelling. and i thought that i was going to die just then and there. and then the swim back to the safety boat, i figured, that's it, i'm never going to make it to the boat. and on the way to the hospital in the ambulance when i started having respiratory problems, once again i thought that was it. >> looking at that video. unbelievable to watch that, what was happening to you at that moment. talk about the recovery then. what happened in the next few months ahead? >> well, the first major instant that happened was the doctor came to me and said, look, it's up to you, but we think you may are to lose your leg. so, that was a huge, a huge impact for me, thinking -- i've kept my leg for a week and now i'll see it taken off. >> and you have to make the choice, by the way. >> yeah. the doctor came to me, gave me all the information involved and said, its up to you. you can keep it and your life will suffer or remove it and we can probably have you walking and running on a prosthetic leg.
6:44 am
my first instinct being high on morphine was take it, turn me into a terminator. probably not too far off. >> wow. >> yeah, that was the first of many major decisions i had to make to improve my quality of life. >> and what allows you to get back in the water three months later? what is it from inside of you that lets you do it? >> it's a big love of being in the water. for me, i don't think you can get any closer of being part of nature than being submerged in the ocean. it's relaxing, alleviates stresses and fears and you feel relaxed. a lot of the stresses that are impacted on you throughout your life. >> paul de gelder, incredible story. thank you for sharing it with us. we really appreciate it. >> thanks for having me. >> emotional story, as i'm choked up. >> are you okay? >> it was my cold. up next, celebrity chef -- this is incredible. thank you for being here. marc murphy will dish about falling in love with the
