Thank you Michelle Tapper on the Gold Coast. A 14-year-old boy has died after falling down a cliff south of Adelaide. He slipped and fell about 50 metres while walking with friends. Paramedics tried to save the boy after he landed on the rocks below. The whole event is a tragic event, especially for his family and friends. It's believed the boy lived locally. The family of murdered underworld figure Carl Williams is planning to sue the Victorian prison system for more than $1 million for pain and suffering caused by his brutal jail death. It comes a day after a report found that prison bosses were warned Williams was at risk of being murdered because he was acting as a police informer. His family could lodge the legal paperwork as early as today on the anniversary of his murder. Music guru Molly Meldrum has spoken publicly about his horrific fall for the first time. He's revealed how the accident changed his life and how the support from fans and friends helped his recovery. It's been overwhelming. It's been so overwhelming it almost scares me at time, you know. Meldrum fell in December while putting up Christmas decorations. He was in an induced coma for more than a month. In finance news: Wall Street still open. Prime Minister Julia Gillard continues to defend her plans for a budget surplus. So what would it do to interest rates? Savanth Sebastian is at CommSec. Morning. Would the Reserve Bank act on a surplus? Yes, Nat, look, I think the Reserve Bank is well aware the government is committed to try to achieve a budget surplus. Given that story is ensures the Reserve Bank can be more comfortable about cuts rates next month ahead of the next round of the budget. Importantly the government needs to be well aware the significant downside risks not just the Australian economy but the global economy. If you do start cutting spending dramatically it can lead to a dangerous downward spiral. The political need is greateren The political need is greateren. The government is effectively watching its expenditure in this environment but I think the Reserve Bank have the opportunity to cut rates but I think the Reserve Bank will come the first of May. Thank you very much Savanth Sebastien from CommSec, time for sport. Dermott Brereton has compared AFL newcomer Israel Folau to Geelong's Tom Hawkins. The rugby League recruit has struggled to make an impact in his first three games of senior football, however, Brereton has urged Giants fans to be patient and, like Hawkins, it could take years to reach his potential. Everyone's marking Israel so hard. He's been in it for 5 minutes forget the 5-year. Fremantle have arrived in Melbourne as they prepare to take on St Kilda. Australia and the West Indies are on track for a draw in the the second test at Queens Park in Trinidad. The Aussies hold a 127-run lead after cleaning up the home side on a rain-affected day four. David Warner made 17 before falling to Kemar Roach. The visitors are standed at 3/73. Adelaide United are one step closer to the knockout stage of the Asian Champions League after beating Pohnag Steelers 1-0. It was a horror night for the Mariner, going down to Seongnam 5-0 just days after missing out on a spot in the A-League grand final. There you go. Beauty. Busy day in sport. Busy day in weather. Really busy. It has been pelting down again in Sydney. In fact, a lot of the east coast of New South Wales it's hammering. Huge rainfall figures overnight, mate. I think luckily I live in a multi story building because I thought I was going to sail in my sealy posturepedic down to Tasmania there was that much in the streets. You would have to Tasmania there was that much rain noticed on the commute home last night. But right from the New South Wales to the Victorian border, massive rainfall. It will continue in Sydney, from the Illawarra down to Victoria. But falls potentially another 150 mL today as we look at the forecast for the first time today. Sunrise Weather brought to you by the half-price sale at Beacon Lighting where your second pendant, lamp or outdoor light is half price. Sale ends Sunday. For Sydney, windy rain. Yes, heavy rain and flash flooding are the warnings in place for Sydney down to the Victorian border. Rain all the way down to Tasmania. The latest figures in half an hour. Alright, look forward to it. You might need to buy yourself a tinny. Plus, up close and personal with the 'CLEO' Bachelor of the Year. But next, that wild weather causing chaos. We're live to SES headquarters. And, the desperate search off the Gold Coast for a lost fisherman. The latest from the man in charge - when we come back.

and the New South Wales Central Coast. Over 80mm has fallen on parts of the city in the past 48 hours, triggering flash flooding. And more rain is expected over the next 24 hours. It's going to be a busy one for the SES. Keith, how busy has it been for your crews? Indeed. With all that rain overnight, the SES has responded or had at least 150 calls for assistance. That number will increase as people wake up this morning and come to terms with the damage that the rain has caused overnight. We have currently had over 1 40 rr associated with this operation. As the weather continues for 24 hours, we will expect to get an increase in the number. They are big numbers but it is a big area, not just Sydney and greater Sydney but the New South Wales central coasts but the New South Wales central coast and as Grant Denyer mentioned, down to the Victorian border? We are sped over a fair part of the coastal part of New South Wales but as today unfolds we expect the weather system will contract to the south and the focus will be the Sydney metropolitan and down into the Illawarra. The midnorth coast, central coast should see, on the predictions so far, an easing of that rain. As I said, we expect today's event will be focused into Sydney sent row and Illawarra. Flash flooding is the problem? Our advice is don't get caught in a flash flood. We are have attended to over 16 flood rescues as part of the operation. Many have resulted from folk driving their vehicles in250 floodwaters. We say, " floodwaters. We say, "Don't risk it. Stay out and we won't have to come and get you out." All the best to you and your crews today. Klthank you very much. To the Gold Coast now where the search is resuming for a man lost at sea. Gavin Studwell's fishing boat sank off Surfers Paradise on Tuesday night. His fishing partner swam for nearly three hours before reaching the shore early yesterday. Search chief Lucas Young is on the Gold Coast. Thanks for joining us. What are the search plans for this morning? Just run us throthe logistics of the search plans for this morning? Yes, well, having seen the conditions the beach this morning, the swell's well, having seen the conditions on come up quite considerably. We will be Mondaying our plan. But -- amending our plan but we have up to eight surface vessels, two helicopters, jet skis and a couple of beach up and down the beach in rhinos, off-road 4-wheel drive vehicles. Cephalhow long will fw continue? At this stage we will go on for another couple of days and then reassess. We are continually checking our checking our figures and what we have done so far. Given the miraculous survival of his fishing partner I am assuming you are confident of finding Mr Studwell alive? Yes, that is our goal, finding Mr Studwell alive. Klgood luck, I hope the conditions don't make it more difficult. Thanks, Mel. Still to come this Sunrise - an alarming abduction. A mother shot and killed outside her doctor's surgery. As she lay dying, her 3-day-old baby is kidnapped from her by a nurse. Plus, anthem debate. 'Advance Australia Fair' marks a milestone but is it time for a change? # For we are young and free # Brought to you by the half-price sale at Beacon Lighting, where the

sale ends Sunday. Making headlines this morning - Carl Williams' family wants compensation for his murder in a Victorian prison. Melbourne's 'Herald Sun' reports they're planning to sue for more than $1 million after an inquiry found authorities knew Williams' life was in danger in jail. Does Carl's family deserve more than $1 million in compo? Tell us what you think. This is a story that just never goes away, does it? ? away, does it? ?Ing, his family they were promised for him to move away, does it? ?Ing, his family say because he was a police informer and the deal was reneged on. So allegations flying everywhere. Authorities have got to take reasonable care. Have they done that. Kltake him out of it, if it is a person in that situation, would they deserve it. Is it because we know his past. We will cross to Melbourne and get details later this morning. Also making news - 'Advance Australia Fair'. It's now 28 years since the song was officially declared our national anthem, after a vote. But it hasn't always been a popular choice and the milestone has reignited a debate about our anthem. We'll hear both sides later in the show. But we'd like to know what you think of 'Advance Australia Fair'? And should we keep it? It might be time. It is a great song, I love the anthem, but as most blokes I find it very hard to sing, you can't quite get it right. It is a tough one. Do you think it has got anything to do with, "Girt by sea." I like it, I like the Australians let us rejoice, the girt, who cares we use more other words more out there. The words great anthems. Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, oi, oi, oi. That always does it the French one is good, da, da, da, da. I think New Zealand anthem is powerful. 'God is good, da, da, da, da. I think the defend New Zealand." defend New Zealand.". We don't that one much. Joking! defend New Zealand.". We don't hear Also making news, the threat to another Aussie icon - shorts. Queensland Rail has told staff to smarten up and wear pants instead of shorts. Union members are furious about the new look, which calls for them to also ditch their long socks. Steady on! The move is supposed to protect workers from skin cancer. On the knees. But does this change put the great Aussie stubbies under threat? Look, Queensland blokes, you have your work short, your dress shorts, your home shorts, just like my grandfather was on the land, had his town hat and farm hat, there is Mick, his cargo. Camouflage. Actually, bring back the pant. We've seen Mick, bring back the pant. It is hot, how can you work in Cairns in long trousers. You have got the socks, how much is it an advantage. The long socks are there for the pen, somewhere pen, somewhere whack the pen. What is the difference with pants? Your socks come here and your shorts there? Are you gaining much? I don't know. You want to do shorts and long socks. Youk go straight from work to the RE after work. Also making news - the 2012 'CLEO' bachelor awards. Lifeguard and TV reality cook, Hayden Quinn has been crowned Bachelor of the Year. Coming in second place was 'The X Factor' finalist and 'Dancing With the Stars' contestant Johnny Ruffo, who could not attend. It is a It is a rough day when you can't get to your award of bachelor of the year. But girls, Hayden has us thinking. Is a bloke who save your life, and cook a great feed, the total package? Pretty much. Yes, that's the ultimate. Is that all he's got? Really? I have been lucky enough to meet him at the Twenty20 cricket. You are lucky. Shoo One of the loveliest young guys I have met. He is nice? Hookcook, save lives. And was at the cricket. But how would he look in shorts and long socks and the pen. The pen always tips it over the edge. And going viral this morning - the cat owner who doesn't need an alarm clock. His pet 'Boo' wakes him for him. Boo doesn't do it because he's hungry or wants to go outside, he does it because he's lonely. Whatever the reason, Oh! Hang on, resident sceptic, is that the real deal? that the real deal?? I don't know. He is playing. Just so great to have another animal story. No, they are artificial paws, seen them 100 times. Got them for Skippy too. You are on to it. Skip lives on. Cute. Later this Sunrise - Molly's message for family, friends and fans. The music guru's first interview in full. Next we've got the code word, so don't go anywhere. Don't leave the room. Lock up your cats. But next, the code word for today's Sunrise Cash Call, which is today worth $20,000. And, breaking news from the US. Iconic TV personality Dick Clark has died at the age of 82. "Hi, I'm an oat and I've got fibre." "I'm a linseed and I have fibre too and now we're together forever." Gavin? Hey...?

We're ready. New Hi Fibre from Uncle Tobys Oats Quick Sachets is a wholesome way to get fibre. Cut! Nobody does oats like Uncle Tobys.

Just when Sydneysiders thought the rain couldn't get any worse, the city is today expected to take the brunt of the wet weather lashing the east coast. The New South Wales SES has already received over 1,000 calls for help since heavy rain began falling on Tuesday. As today's events unfold, we expect that that weather system will contract towards the south and the focus for today will in fact be the Sydney metropolitan area and down into the Illawarra. The Weather Bureau's issued a warning for flash flooding. A teenage boy has been killed in a tragic cliff fall south of Adelaide. He was with mates near a well-known beach when he slipped and plunged onto the rocks below. The emergency unfolded late in the afternoon The 14-year-old boy had been walking along a cliff top near Maslin Beach with friends when he slipped and fell around 50 metres. (HELICOPTER WHIRRS) Paramedics were winched to the rocks below and tried desperately to save him. Unfortunately, he passed away during their efforts. Lifesavers later retrieved the boy's body. It's believed he lived locally. Police say the area is well known among thrillseekers for jumping into the water. However, the incident happened today is a tragic incident and it's an accident, It wasn't as a result of jumping off into the cliffs, it was walking simply and merely walking along the cliff face, where he's lost his footing and fallen down the cliffs. Three girls in swimmers and towels, believed to be the boy's friends, where comforted by emergency crews as his body was recovered. The whole event is a tragic event especially for his family and friends and the people involved that came here to help. A young life lost in the blink of an eye. Police are confident of finding a fisherman alive after he went missing in waters off the Gold Coast on Tuesday morning. Gavin Studwell disappeared after his boat sank but search crews aren't giving up hope. We have up to eight surf vessels, two helicopters, a couple of jet skis and we've also got police up and down the beach in Rhinos, 4-wheel-drive off-road vehicles. Police will continue the search for two days before reassessing their stratgey. Sydney's streets have again been patrolled by extra police overnight in an attempt to stop shootings between rival bikie gangs. The New South Wales Police Commissioner warns unless gun smugglers are stopped there will be more trouble to come. Police are hoping their undercover work will lead to a breakthrough. We're intelligence-led as an organisation now and, certainly, I'm sure that we have people in the right place, doing the right things at the right time. There have been 48 shootings in Sydney this year. The White House and American military officials have slammed the actions of US soldiers who are shown posing in photographs with the remains of Afghan suicide bombers. The pictures were taken in 2010 and leaked to a Los Angeles newspaper. Troops were meant to be identifying the bodies, instead the photos show the men making jokes and arranging the corpses into crude poses. The US Army has apologised and an investigation has been launched. And in 10 minutes, we're live to Washington for reaction. American entertainment legend Dick Clark has died from a heart attack at the age of 82. Nicknamed 'America's oldest teenager', he was best known for creating and hosting US TV show 'American Bandstand'. His trademark countdown show 'Rockin' Eve' became a fixture of New Year celebrations across the country. A family in Brazil has had a lucky escape after an out-of-control car became airborne and smashed into the side of their house. The car finished up stuck in the second storey of the house, less than a metre away from a baby's bed. The 25-year-old driver, who was trapped in the wreck, will face charges. Incredible, isn't it. Doesn't look real. I know! In finance news: Time for sport. Here's Beretts. Thanks, Nat. of the new-look Kiwi's The Kangaroos are wary of the new-look Kiwis ahead of tomorrow's test in Auckland. Australia will go into the game as firm favourites but insist New Zealand's new halves pairing of Shaun Johnson and Benji Marshall is dangerous. You know, with Johnson now in the halves and Benji Marshall, like I said, one minute off, it's all over. Willie Mason will train with his new side the Newcastle Knights for the first time today. Freemantle Coach Ross Lyon has arrived in Melbourne to take on his former side, St Kilda, at Etihad Stadium in round four of the AFL tomorrow night. Lyon sensationally walked out on the Saints after last year's elimination final loss and expects to cop it from the fans. A rain-affected day four has Australia and the West Indies on track for a draw in the second test at Queens Park in Trinidad. The Aussies hold a 127-run lead at 3/73. David Warner made 17 before Kemar Roach. Ricky Ponting and Michael Clarke are waiting for the rain to clear before they can head back out to the crease. And get down to work and really clean it up for Australia. Look forward to that. Let's get to the weather, closer to home, GD, a wild time, you are out in it. A big night last night and chaotic conditions expect across the New South Wales coastal regions yet again today. The big surface trough sitting over central and southern parts of New South Wales coastline is going central and southern parts of the to take effect once again. It will continue to bring heavy rain, much flash flooding warnings are in place. Widespread falls for 50 to 100 mLs expect across the coast line, up to 150 mLs in some locations. But the latest severe weather warnings are for metropolitan Sydney, the south coast of New South Wales, Illawarra, Hunter, midnorth coast and southern tableland regions of New South Wales. That heavy rain is likely to start to disapire later tonight as it pushed into the Tasman but another wild and woolly day ahead, I am afraid. But let's look at the forecast for the rest of the country. Sunrise Weather brought to you by the half-price sale at Beacon Lighting where your second pendant, lamp or outdoor light is half price. Sale ends Sunday. A low-pressure trough and easterly winds are generating heavy rain over eastern New South Wales and Victoria. A cold front and trough are bringing showers and storms to southern parts of WA. Alright, that weather is playing havoc with Grant so I'll take over for you. Here is Canberra's forecast. We'll check in with Grant a bit later on when he dries out. This morning we have $20,000 to give away. So, if you've entered the Sunrise Cash Call, stay watching.

American troops pose for photos with the remains of dead Afghan soldiers. We're live to Washington for reaction. Then, one in three Aussies putting their health at risk because they don't get enough sun. Plus, I spy. The new technology letting parents keep watch on their kids online. And a top of 24 degrees. A new online tool has been launched to let parents keep an eye on what their kids are up to on social networking. Telstra Safe Social tells mums and dads who their children are making friends with and it uses key words to alert adults to any anti-social behaviour like underage drinking or cyber bullying. Parents can get instant alerts or weekly reports. But you do have to pay for the service. Cybersafety expert Susan McLean is in Melbourne. Hi, Susan. Are tools like this the answer to keeping kids safe online? No, they are not the answer at all. Look, they've been arond in similar forms for forms for probably five or six years. If they were so wonderful and they worked we wouldn't have the problems with kids online we are seeing already. Education is the key, not monitoring and key, not monitoring and snooping what your children are doing online. A lot of parents can't educate their kids because they don't have any idea, they don't know what Twitter is. Would the alert help? For me, it is after the event, you are not preventing anything. As the doctor from RMIT said it is about education, it is not necessarily the parents, schools have a role to play as do all sectors of the community. But the thing is kids have duplicate Facebook accounts and this system relying on a child giving a parent a log in and pass word. If you can do that already you don't need to pay for monitoring software. If the parents are so ignorant, and the kids are not, they can probably disable half of the stuff and the parents don't know. If the kids start playing around with it, parent get an alert. I call it start playing around with it, the parenting by remote. The media said it is like having a parent in the room when the child is on the computer. The parent should be in the room anyway, not rely on a device. Klyour advice is Your advice is to be in the room? And if you don't know, go and do course? Schools are more than welcoming and offer some sort of training for parents. My best advice is get online and start to play around with the applications your children are using. If your kids are on Facebook, get on as well. If they are on Twitter or playing Club Penguin or Moshy Monster, play as well. Kids love having something up on their parent, share the knowledge. Don't force your children into your world. As parent we are scared foopress the wrong button and bugger the whole thing. But we are not. Thank you. Photos have been published of American soldiers posing with the remains of suspected Taliban suicide bombers in Afghanistan. For more we're joined from Washington Steve, when were the photos taken and why have they come to light now? Well, Nat, the Pentagon tried to keep them from coming to light and keep the images from going viral by going to the soul source, the 'Los Angeles Times'. One of 's biggest e and most respected newspapers. They said they got it from a single soldier, who said he was appalled by what he witnessed in 2010, when the photographs were taken, Nataliech from American forces from the 82 airborne desligz, a combat decision that stretches back to World War II, in that stretches back to World War II, in two separate instances they with the remains of dead Afghans, said to be suicide bombers one whose in two separate instances they posed

bomb wept off as planned and caused damage and the others, whose bombs went off as they were building the bombs. Partly dismembered Afghans the Americans had their taken with, two years go. But it the Americans had their pictures caused a big problem for American forces, even Australian forces, taken with, two years go. But it has

potentially in Afghanistan today. That is the problem. What are the chances of reprisal against American, allied and other troops in Afghanistan? It is hard to tell. Look at the history just this year. We had in January the release of that video, that I am sure was on the web seen by Australians on the web, maybe on TV there, of American soldiers urinating on dead Taliban. That was January. Did not cause major reprisals. Then the month after was the very well known instance where Americans inadversantly burned a couple of Corins. That -- Korans. That caused widespread violence, at least six Americans were killed in that violence, followed in March the attack on Afghan families by the one accused American soldier, which again, did not cause widespread retaliation. So the worst thing so far, at least gauging the reaction of Afghans so far this year has been the destruction of the Korans, not

the videos photos or murders. So with the release of the photographs, American forces, NATO forces have been been put on speciallert to be sure - special alert so that there are reprisals they will be aware. Thank you. Time will tell. sure - special alert so that if

We're all familiar with the "slip, slop, slap" message. But now experts say there's a dark side to staying out of the sun. One in three Aussies are Vitamin D deficient putting us at risk of serious illness. Vitamin D can help prevent brittle bones, infection and depression. And recent studies show it can also ward off cancer and heart disease. How can we make sure we get enough vitamin D? Sunrise GP Ginni Mansberg joins us to explain. Morning, Ginni. How do you know if you're vitamin D deficient? You would not have a clue until you get a blood test from your doctor and they go, " and they go, "Guess what, I've got news for you." You won't know. Going in for a skin cancer checkup, is it wise to say give me blood test. Every time I do a blood test on afacient I say check your vitamin D levels as as well so it surprises you. We are getting mixed messages, get in the sun, don't stay in the sun, you need sun. At the moment because we are in Sydney and I don't know what the sun is anymore. It is good for the soul and I am missing it but I don't think you it but I don't think you need to go into solarium ever. To maintain your vitamin D levels is complex, your burn time divided by three per to maintain it. That is what you need. The question is how do you burn time divided by three per day

know your burn time? Most of us know how long it takes to burn in middle of the day, the morning, a how long it takes to burn in the cloudy day you get a feeling of topping up your sunscreen, that time by three. Not a huge amount. Like people like me, I should live in a peat bog in Scotland. Where I work, the people have Mediterranean background, they have dark skin which I would kill for. Is there any way to get your fix. Inif you are up for cod liver oil, that way or a whole variety in forms as a supplement. I am on one. So the key is moderation? The best way to put it? I think a little bit of sunshine is just good for the soul. You don't

need to burn yourself but it to be good for other things. It is need to burn yourself but it happens amazing to be good for other things. It is amazing how important vitamin D levels are. Wouldn't it be great to see a bit of unsunshine today, in the future. Ever. Doesn't it feel good to get warmth on your skin, not that we remember that feeling. And a French aristocrat has apologised to Pippa Middleton for pointing a toy pistol at police. His apology comes as more video emerges of Pippa partying in Paris, hours before the gun stunt in the car. No, no.

We'll check in with our reporter soon and get the expert word from forecasters. Sydney has been warned to brace for heavy rain and flash flooding for the third day in a row. The SES has responded to more than 1,00 calls for help this week and performed 16 flood rescues. Many of those have resulted from folk actually driving their vehicles into floodwaters and so we just say don't risk it, stay out and then we won't have to come and get you out. Several roads remain closed. The rain should start to ease tonight. A teenage boy has been killed in a tragic cliff fall south of Adelaide. He was with mates near a well-known beach when he slipped and plunged onto the rocks below. The emergency unfolded late in the afternoon The 14-year-old boy had been walking along a cliff top near Maslin Beach with friends when he slipped and fell around 50 metres. (HELICOPTER WHIRRS) Paramedics were winched to the rocks below and tried desperately to save him. Unfortunately, he passed away during their efforts. Lifesavers later retrieved the boy's body. It's believed he lived locally. Police say the area is well known among thrillseekers for jumping into the water. However, the incident happened today is a tragic incident and it's an accident. It wasn't as a result of jumping off into the cliffs, It was walking simply and merely walking along the cliff face, where he's lost his footing and fallen down the cliffs. Three girls in swimmers and towels, believed to be the boy's friends, where comforted by emergency crews as his body was recovered. The whole event is a tragic event especially for his family and friends and the people involved that came here to help. A young life lost in the blink of an eye.

Sunrise Weather brought to you by the half-price sale at Beacon Lighting where your second pendant, lamp or outdoor light is half price. Sale ends Sunday. Let's get more details on the wild conditions in New South Wales. New South Wales is still being lashed by wild weather. Heavy rain triggered flash flooding overnight in Sydney. The SES has been inundated with calls for help and has carried out 15 rescues. For more we're joined by Sunrise correspondent Edwina Bartholomew in Sydney, and Tom Saunders at The Weather Channel. Good morning. Eddy, how is it looking in Sydney this morning? Well, Mel, it is a beautiful day out here at Parramatta but don't be fooled, there are clear skies behind me but dark, foreboding clouds on the other side. If you don't live in Sydney, the pictures show how bad it was. There is a severe weather warning for heavy rain and localised flooding. It incovers the city, Gosford, woollen gone, Nowra, right down the coast. The Georges River, flood watch for Nepean river. The city is expected to be really badly hit today. Bear the brunt of most of the weather. We had extensive delays yesterday, the entire city was in grid lock and public transport as well. Here at Parramatta, the ferry service was suspended because as you can see, the Parramatta Weir was over flowing and still is. The schedule will likely tee affected today. Tom, why is it so extreme? A high large high pressure system sitting in the southern Tasman Sea anchored all week directing winds onshore. Those winds are meeting a trough of treasure that has been sitting on the coast for the week but it is finally on the move, heading south, which is why the rain has eased in Sydney for the past few hours. There is still the chance for heavy falls today for the heavy falls today for the eastern and southern parts of the city but not as heavy or persistent yesterday. Having said that, is a chance of flash flooding. The rain will focus on the southern part yesterday. Having said that, there

of the New South Wales coast so another 100 mL is possible. That rain will clear tonight and rain will clear tonight and on the south coast of New South Wales, clearing Friday. So a bit of an end in sight. The sez has been inundated with calls over the past couple of days how are they coping? Yes, they had 300 volunteers on duty for the past couple of days sppding to roads blocked, trees down. By late yesterday they received 600 calls for help but it rose exponentialally overnight. Listen to the chief commissioner Fitzgerald. We've currently had over 1,040 jobs associated with this particular operation and as the weather continues for the next 24 hours, we'll obviously expect to get an increase in that number. As always, those same warnings in place, be careful on the roads, don't drive through floodwaters, a lot of the rescues the SES is having to do and steer clear of any creeks that are over flowing. We always say, it might look OK but gosh it comes in quickly. Tom, you said it should ease by tomorrow morning, the next 24 hours, how are we looking after that? In for hopefully a nice weekends and next week? It will be mostly dry for New South Wales for the weekend, just isolated showers but nothing compared to the last few days but the trough triggering the rain is moving south so Tasmania will get heavy rain on Friday, it will clear by the weekend but itic hads like another trop of low pressure moving through pressure moving through south eastern Australia next week. So cities like Sydney could have heavy rain again in a week's time. Gosh! It is just incredible. I don't know if we are happy to hear that news but thank you for telling us, Eddy, you take care, see you soon. A teenager has died after falling from a cliff at Maslin Beach in Adelaide's south. For more we're joined by Seven News reporter Peter Caldicott. Peter, what was the 14-year-old doing at the time? Matt, this is such a tragic story, especially during the school holidays. What we know is the 14-year-old was walking with friends near Gull Rock at mazlens beach just south of Adelaide at 4:15, he fell and slipped and fell 50 metres into a cliff face into inaccessible rocks. His friends raised the alarm and a full rescue mission was put into swing. Two paramedics were winch said down to where the boy was and they desperately tried to save him but unfortunately he suffered a cardiac arrest and tragically died. As you can imagine, his parents when they arrived at the top of the clip were horrified that their son was fighting for his life. Their friends were hoping he would be saved they were shattered when news were hoping he would be saved but in he passed away. A rugged but but they were shattered when news came spectacular part of the world. You can understand why people walk there. The rescue crews swung the to action quickly, it must have action quickly, it must action quickly, it must have been a difficult job for them It was extremely difficult for paramedics as detective Sergeant George explains. It's pretty much inaccessable by foot. My understanding is paramedics were winched down to the bottom of the cliff and they're being taken out from the base of the cliff by Surf Rescue rubber duckie. Police have interviewed all the witnesses who were at the scene, prepare agreport for the coroner. I guess the question has to be asked why weren't there any barriers or fences in place to stop the boy going over the edge? I guess that is something for the council to explain and possibly put up some in the future. Thank you, as you and possibly put up some guardrails say, a tragedy all arounds. A 14-year-old boy loses his life with his friends and folks watching. Jorx To the US now, where a nurse has been charged with kidnapping a newborn baby from outside a Texas hospital and shooting dead the young mother. Seven news US correspondent Angela Cox joins us. This is quite an alarming case, isn't it? Yes, this is incredibly disturbing. This young woman, 28-year-old Kayla Golden had taken her three day old boy to routine doctor's checkup. Walking out outside strapped him in the car when confronted by a woman, Verna MacLean. She pulled out a gun, shot her several times in the chest and then went around, got the boy out of the car, put him in her own vehicle. Apparently witnesses say, the young mother even though she was badly hurt tried to go over and save her son by getting him out of the car. She was knocked over and run over by Maclean as she left. The police raid an apartment complex after spotting the car. And she aproveed police saying I know you have looking for my car but I wasn't involved in the shooting. They found the baby at her sister pfs home, he was unwarmed but in the his mum had died from injuries. was unwarmed but in the meantime, Terrible, baby just three days old. Do police have a motive had Apparently this woman was just desperate to have baby. She caught herself up in a web of lies herself up in a web of lie telling her fiancee she had a baby when she didn't. She did have a miscarriage, she needed to justify having a child to her soon-to-be fiancee, they were going to get married in may going to get married in going to get married in May. She led him to believe she was pregnant and needed to produce a child. Now, police say she hadn't specifically targeted baby Kegan and Kayla was in the wrong place as the wrong time. The baby has township nou been reunited with his father. To the Gold Coast now, where a search has resumed this morning for a man lost at sea. near Surfer's Paradise Gavin Studwell's fishing boat sank near Surfers Paradise on Tuesday night. His fishing partner swam for nearly three hours before reaching the shore early yesterday. is on the Gold Coast. How is the search progressing this morning?

They are having more difficulty today, the in the Broadwater and they have got

I was talking to Lucas Young from the water police, heading up the operation, he said they are talking to survival experts and believe he could survive in the water if a couple of days. He has amazing stories. There was a case a couple of years ago, a fisherman went missing off the coast, he for four days in the water just clinging to a bamboo pole so they missing off the coast, he survived

are still hopeful. Good luck, thank you Michelle Tapper on the Gold Coast. Today marks 28 years since 'Advance Australia Fair' was officially declared our national anthem. The song was voted for by the Australian people and has become part of our identity. # Australians all let us # For we are young and free. # But it hasn't always been a popular choice. So, is it time to change it? We haven't got a lot of heritage and we need to keep our national anthem, it's very important. If somebody came up with a really good one I would go for it, just like a really good new flag. I think it's brilliant - fantastic anthem. It has been there for many years and hope it is there for many more. It is a fantastic anthem. Maybe they could update it for modern audiences and put in words that people understand, I guess. For more, we're joined by monarchist David Flint in Melbourne and former Liberal Senator Amanda Vanstone in Adelaide, who's written her own anthem. Good morning to you both. David, first to you. What do you think of the anthem? Well, I would object to it changing. I think it has just change for change's sake. It took some time to get it into place, the politicians didn't handle it very well. It was on again and off again, there was a plebicide whether it would be the national song. It became the anthem, they changed the they changed the words, they made a mistake with the procclamation, the royal an them is to be used whenever they wish. We have got it in place, we have got our flag rb our constitution, why do we want to change these fundamental things there are many more important change these fundamental things when to be discussing. You have written your own Amanda, called 'Under there are many more important things

southern Stars' we should we change it? I didn't describe it as an anthem, it is a hymn to Australia but it is an themic music. We can do better. For those who say it ain't broke don't fix it, I say I hope you enjoy black-and-white telly. I aspire to make things better. It is a trait about Australians. Look, our anthem at the moment touches all our hearts and we hope to hear it day at the Olympics and I will be hearts and we hope to hear it every cheering like everybody else but I just think we can do better. I think we need an anthem that recognises, first, Australians and recognises that we are a migrant country, and recognises we are one of the few countries that came into being peacefully, we don't go to war to take other people's land and recognises freedom and the weird plants and animals that no-one else has got. We can do better, we can do better and touch the hearts of Australians in a way that the current anthem doesn't. Look, it was written 100 years before it was accepted. David Flin is quite the words had to be changed accepted. David Flin is quite right, they were masochanistic and blokey. the words had to be changed because They don't touch the hearts of Australians. We are capable of doing better. Does it need to be updated, David? No, it doesaboutant. The words -- no it doesn't. The words are understandable. You don't change fundamental things, you don't change the Lord' Prayer. Come on, it not the Lord's prayer, it was adopted in 1984. Make it responsive to people. At least we don't sing 'God Save the Queen' anymore. A good healthy debate, we have it frequently. On a

lighter note A retired couple from a tiny farming town has become instant multimillionaires after a recent US lottery win. They're the third and final winners to come forward and claim a share of a record-breaking jackpot. Jay Gray has the story. The $218 million question has been answered in Illinois. (APPLAUSE) Merle Butler says he found out he was a mega millionaire watching the evening news the night of the drawing. It was two, four, and the further I went the more they matched. A perfect match. After I looked at it for a couple of minutes I turned to my wife, who was right there with me, and I says, "We won". And she kind of looked at me funny and I says, "No, we won." And then she started giggling and she giggled for about four hours, I think. Three weeks later, the retired computer analysts are still laughing. It seems with the lawyers, financial advisors and planning - winning the lotto has become a full-time job. No, no - I'm not looking for sympathy. I'm just saying that it's a bit of work to set this all up. The Butlers say they may take a vacation at some point but other than that there are no lavish plans. The lifetime residents of tiny Red Bud, Illinois, where the ticket was purchased, say they don't plan to take their newfound fortune anywhere else. We're staying here, we know everyone in Red Bud. I mean, I grew up here and it's 3,700 It's a nice comfortable family orientate said community. With a brand new millionaire. Jay Gray reporting there. In that state you have to come out and hold a press conference. It is an old thing, they have to prove a real person won it. In the other two states, they don't have to. I don't know how long they will be staying. I know they say it now. Until they buy the whole town. But now that everybody knows they have got a couple of hundred million in the bank. You would want to stay anonymous. They seem good winners, it is the sort of people eye want to win, if it is not you. Stay right where you are. We're just minutes away from calling our next cash winner. And this time there's $20,000 on the line. And next, today's news and weather. Then, Carl compo claim. Should Carl Williams' family receive $1 million. And, the year of the blockbuster. The biggest and best movies of 2012. That's coming up.

# I don't want to think anymore # Let's call our next cash winner. This is very exciting. Yesterday our winner didn't answer the phone. Can you dial, please. It has jackpoted to $ to $20,000. Quick! That is three. Four. Five. Jackpot! Wow! $ Four. Five. Jackpot! Wow! $30,000 tomorrow. That is a lot of I'm sticking around. That is a tomorrow. That is a lot of money. massive amount of money. You need a code word, let's give it to you. It is dial. That will put a smile on your dial. The code word is 'Dial'. Now, just ring 1902 557 707 or send a text to 19 777 077 with all the details. Just hang around tomorrow. Seriously, enter. Shouldn't encourage people not to go to work. Don't go to work until you get your phone call. It is raining anyway. It is raining, it's Friday. Later - the first interview with music guru Molly Meldrum in full. The accident, his recovery, how he's really doing in his own words. How he bolted from hospital as well. Yes, good guy. News time first though, here's Nat. More heavy rain and flash flooding is predicted for Sydney today but weather forecasters say it won't last much longer. Emergency services have been inundated with more than 1,000 calls for help as wild weather continues to lash the state. Another 100mm is possible over the next 24 hours but that rain in Sydney will be clearing tonight and then for the south coast of New South Wales it should be clearing early Friday. Drivers can expect delays this morning with dozens of road closures across the city. A 14-year-old boy has died after falling down a cliff south of Adelaide.

Gavin Studwell disappeared after his boat sank but search crews aren't giving up hope. We have up to eight surface vessels, two helicopters, a couple of jet skis and we've also got police up and down the beach in Rhinos, 4-wheel-drive off-road vehicles. Police will continue the search for two days before reassessing their strategy. The White House and American military officials have slammed the actions of US soldiers who are shown posing in photographs with the remains of Afghan suicide bombers. The pictures were taken in 2010 and leaked to a Los Angeles newspaper. Troops were meant to be identifying the bodies instead the photos show the men making jokes and arranging the corpses into crude poses. The US Army has apologised and an investigation has been launched. Music guru Molly Meldrum has spoken publicly about his horrific fall for the first time. He's revealed how the accident changed his life and how the support from fans and friends helped his recovery. It's been overwhelming. It's been so overwhelming it almost scares me at times, you know. Meldrum fell in December while putting up Christmas decorations. He was in an induced coma for more than a month.
