Pennsylvania... a body falls out the back of a coroner's truck. Yup, you heard that right; a dead body on a rolling gurney, fell out of a truck and into the middle of a busy intersection as dozens of cars drove by. One witness jumped out of his car to help the driver get the body back in the truck. The official story is that the 2002 Chevy pick-up had a mechanical malfunction. The truck now has bungee cords securing the back hatch...

Hawaii... The U.S. Marines are testing out a new bionic helper during their annual Rim of the Pacific military exercises in Oahu. It's not quite R2D2 and not quite man's best friend. It's LS3, or, Legged Squad Support System. The military describes it as a robotic mule that walks on four legs. These exercises involve 22 countries and about 25,000 military personnel...

New york... Bonjour! France came to Manhattan for the annual Bastille Day celebration. 60th street has been transformed into Petite Paris with all things French. Thousands of people sampled the delicacies and took in the culture. For more than a decade, Bastille Day on 60th street has been the largest celebration in New York commemorating France's Independence Day, July 14th. And that's been a well-cultured USA Update.
