11-Year-Old Survives Two Lung Transplants: "I'm Not Going For Easy"

Though Sarah Murnaghan, 11, can breathe without an oxygen machine, her voice is still a whisper.

The brave patient speaks out exclusively to CNN's Jason Carroll  since surviving two lung transplants it took her parents fighting in court to have.

National policy shifted to accommodate the so-called under 12 rule, which allowed children priority on an adult donor list they couldn't be on before.

While lawyers argued specifics, the Murnaghans' watched as their daughter's condition grew worse.

Her father Fran Murnaghan says, "There were a few incidences before the first transplant that she essentially conveyed that she knew she was dying."  

Her mother Janet adds, "She said, I just didn't want to tell you I was dying. I didnt want to upset you."

Now that Sarah is ready to leave the hospital for home, she's realistic about the fight ahead.

"I'm not going for easy...I'm just going for possible, and what's in front of me right now is possible"

$40 Million Fraud Suit Brought Against Donald Trump

If you took a class at Donald Trump's university, you may not have met the property mogul in person but you probably got to take a picture with a cardboard cutout of him.

This is just one of the charges New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says contributes to the government's $40 million suit targeted at Trump for fraud.

The charges allege the TV personality misled prospective students with a bait and switch operation. Excited pupils would pay $1500 for a three day workshop. Once they were enrolled, leaders would push for a $35,000 year-long course.

In a phone call to "New Day,"  Trump shrugged off the suit, saying most of the students at the school left happy.

"We had a 98 percent approval rating, people loved the school," he said. "The school was terrific."

The Thief With a Conscience

In today's edition of the good stuff, a remorseful thief in Winnipeg, Canada, who gets arrested anyway.

CNN's Chris Cuomo reports. 

Esso gas station clerk Satnam Singh was working when a robber knocked on the pull-up window with a gun asking for money.

"I have a gun, whatever you have in your cash register," the robber threatened the cashier.

But Singh was fearless and pushed the man away empty handed.

According to the employee, a short time later when authorities were already at the scene, the thief returned with an apology.

"I look at his face, I say, that's the same guy, " says Singh.  The robber was repentant and said he needed the money.

The cops took him away anyway but the larger lesson might be to apologize when you've done something you know is wrong.

It might just even out your karma.
