California... Los Angeles County deputies pulled off a daring rescue at Eaton Canyon in Pasadena Friday, after some hikers ended up getting stuck. A helicopter hovered overhead, and the hikers were lifted out of canyon one at a time, then dropped off at a nearby ball field. It is still unknown how they got trapped in the canyon in the first place...

Georgia... thieves break into a DMV office in Atlanta by driving a van through it. Surveillance video captured the break-in. The van narrowly missed a security guard on duty. Police say the thieves were after ATM's inside the office, and they were able to steal two of them. It's not clear exactly how much cash was inside those ATM's, but police say the entire break-in took less than three minutes...

New york... preparations are underway for the New Year's Eve ball drop at Times Square. Electricians are hard at work, installing the last of the more than 2600 crystal triangles that give the ball its shimmer. This year's design features a kaleidoscopic pattern that will refract light in a splash of 16 million colors as the ball drops down a flagpole at the stroke of midnight. And with that, we've run out of time on this USA Update.
