Illinois... a dramatic river rescue in Chicago with the whole thing caught on camera. Witnesses called 911 after seeing a woman struggling in the water. Within minutes, rescue teams were on the scene. A diver swam out to the middle of the river, grabbed the woman, then slowly swam back to shore. She was taken to the hospital in good condition. No word if she fell into the river, or if she jumped in...

New York... a retaining wall collapses in Brooklyn, crushing several parked cars in the Crown Heights neighborhood. The 20-foot concrete wall fell apart onto a parking garage behind a building, sending a shower of debris down a driveway and smashing three cars. Luckily, no one was injured. The Buildings Department will investigate the collapse...

Wisconsin... students ditched their cars for a different kind of ride to school. Auburndale High held its 7th annual "Bring Your Tractor to School Day." About 30 students participated, making one pit stop on their way through town-- the elementary school-- where dozens of children stood outside just to catch a glimpse of all the tractors. And with that we have plowed through another USA Update.
