Massachusetts... a crane collapses and overturns in Boston's North End. The tip of the crane landed right on a neighborhood baseball field and on the way down it also hit a parked pick-up truck. Streets near the crane were closed so crews could remove it and clean up the mess. Luckily, no one was injured, but still no idea what happened to cause the accident...

California... a mother whale and her calves are delighting crowds off the coast of dana point. They are swimming side-by-side near the beach, occasionally coming up to spout water. Whales usually cruise the waters about two to ten miles off the coast, so this is a nice close-up for viewers. It is blue whale season, so there will likely be more sightings in the weeks to come...

Louisiana... a New Orleans woman is paying tribute to Barbara Walters by getting a tattoo of the television icon, who is saying farewell to daily television. The woman says she knew she wanted the tattoo as soon as she found out Walters was retiring. The creator of "The View" made her last appearance as co-host Friday. She'll stay on as executive producer and contibute to ABC News. And with that, the ink is dry on this USA Update.
