Illinois... an investigation underway after a visitor gets trapped inside a jail for more than a day. The man was visiting his son when he somehow ended up inside a room that wasn't being used. The steel door closed, trapping him inside for more than 30 hours. Eventually, the man broke a fire sprinkler head, and firefighters discovered him...

Maryland... it's been 100 years since Babe Ruth made his major league debut and his hometown is celebrating by selling off some of his most prized items. They have 125 rare items on display here, including Ruth's first Yankee home run ball, and his 1918 contract with the Red Sox. More than 1300 items in all are on the block for the auction, set to take place July 12th...

Wisconsin... the Eiffel Tower is going up in Milwaukee. The annual Bastille Days festival is here. The 43-foot-tall replica is up in Cathedral Square Park. A 100-foot crane was used to lift the pieces into place. The tower will stand tall for the duration of the festival, running Thursday through Sunday. And that's been a magnifique USA Update.
