Indiana... two children were hurt after being hit by a school bus this morning in Taylorsville. The 9-year-old girl and 6-year-old boy are sister and brother. It appears they may have run out in front of the bus. None of the 35-children who were on the bus was hurt. Those children, and the two kids who were hurt, all attend Taylorsville Elementary School...

California... two teens are rescued after falling off a cliff at China Beach in San Francisco. One of the teens was taken to a U.S. Coast Guard cutter by a Wave Runner. The other victim was airlifted into a helicopter. The teens fell this afternoon at the beach located in the city's Sea Cliff neighborhood. There's no word on the victims conditions and it's unclear what led to the fall...

New York... people are getting a close look at the next generation in diving in the Big Apple. The "Exosuit" is on display for one week at the American Museum of Natural History. The device can take a diver down 1000 feet at surface pressure. Weighing more than 500 pounds, the hard-metal suit will be tested as a scientific tool this summer in a collaborative effort by the museum. And with that, we've taken a dive on this USA Update.
