Swimmer makes fifth attempt to swim from Cuba to US

Lots of people will go swimming this holiday weekend, but this is something different altogether. Diana Nyad is making her fifth, and she says last attempt to swim from Cuba to the United States. The 64-year-old's prior attempts were halted by ocean currents, dehydration and jellyfish stings. Nyad is attempting to be the first person to ever swim the Florida straits without a wet suit, shark cage or flippers.  A 35-member crew will accompany Nyad on her attempt.  She's hoping to complete the mission within three days.
