The Worm: What's lined up for Tuesday, May 1st – Terror plots hidden in pornography, an amazing rescue and exotic animals returning home

As the saying goes, it's what the early bird catches. With "Early Start" revving up for a 5aET start, here's a sneak peek at what we have lined up for tomorrow's show.

Terror plots hidden in porn. On the first anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden our Nic Robertson has a dramatic, detailed look at proposed terror plots from Al Qaeda. In one, they hijack a cruise ship, kill passengers and post video of it online. Plans were hidden inside pornography videos on a memory card, which an operative then hid in his underwear. More plots, more details in the morning – from Nic.

Amazing rescue. A toddler falls into a storm drain and can only be pulled out when the fire department deploys something of a secret weapon. A, shall we say… diminutive firefighter. Her name is Rosa Tullis. You can meet her when we talk to her live.

Delta Airlines buys own gas station. Becomes first airline to purchase an oil refinery, says it could cut $300 million in jet fuel costs (they spent $12B last year). Delta says purchase will add to earnings/margins, but what will it mean to ticket prices?? Christine Romans pushing back on it.

Exotic animals returning to home zoo. Imaging living next door to a few leopards and a brown bear… in a place where dozens of animals were set free just last year to roam the woods and nearby highway. Crazy story out of Ohio continues, we’re talking to head of the Columbus Zoo about why anyone would need a leopard in their backyard.

Plus we've got all the late night show highlights and trending stories that you missed while you were sleeping. Watch "Early Start with Ashleigh and Zoraida" live Tuesday starting at 5am Eastern on CNN.
