Transcript for Family mistakenly handcuffed by police
We turn now to ABC's Kyra Phillips who's in Washington with all of the latest headlines for us. Good afternoon. We begin here with the primaries across five states, voters heading to the polls despite the pandemic for statewide contts in Arizona, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri and Washington. Competitive races up and down the ballot including a big primary fight for Michigan congresswoman Rashida tlaib. And many questions around this upsetting scene in Aurora, Colorado. A whole family on a Sunday outing handcuffed on the ground. Those officers apparently believing they were in a stolen vehicle. Police now saying the actual stolen vehicle was a motorcycle from another state, the department apologizing now and opening an internal investigation. Telling ABC news the encounter was just simply heartbreaking. And the sobering headline from the U.N. When it comes to the pandemic's effect on education. The U.N. Chief saying 1 billion students are impacted in the largest disruption of education in history. Schools closed in more than 160 countries and that the U.N. Official is warning that the world now faces a, quote, generational catastrophe. And the S.O.S. Carved out in that saved sailors. Take a look at that. The men were rescued from that tiny pacific island in Micronesia. Amy, it was from the air that the pilot saw those S.O.S. Letters that are were spelled out on the beach. The sailors had gone off course on a short sail, ran out of fume, the good news they were found in pretty good condition. Remarkable story. We're so glad they're okay.
