Toledo Sinkhole Swallows Car

Imagine driving and getting trapped inside a sinkhole.

That terrifying scenario was all too real for one woman in Toledo.

Sixty-year-old Pamela Knox and her car were swallowed by a sinkhole suddenly opening up in the middle of a busy street.

Police and fire crews had to use a crane and a ladder to rescue her. It took four hours.

“Slowly she was able to work her way out, to safety,” CNN’s Zain Asher reports. “Knox was surprisingly not hurt in the accident, but was taken to the hospital as a precaution.”

Coney Island, Still Recovering

“New Day” is celebrating the Fourth of July this morning with some news of progress over at New York's historic Coney Island.

Heavily damaged during Superstorm Sandy last October, many rides are up and running. But challenges remain and parts of the amusement park will be off-limits today.

CNN's Jason Carroll reports from Coney Island with details:

“They are trying but they are definitely struggling out here,” he says.

The Astro Tower may not be ready. The Wonder Wheel is shut down at this point, and as a safety precaution, so is the world famous Cyclone.

“That means a lot of these vendors may not be open in time for the holiday,” Carroll reports.

However, the 2013 Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest is still on and the beach is open.

“These businesses look forward to Fourth of July like Christmas in terms of business for them, so they’re encouraging everyone still to come out and enjoy the day.”

Dolphins Crash in Mid-Air!

A video of two dolphins colliding in mid-air while swimming behind a boat is going viral.

Co-anchor Chris Cuomo's response?

"... he did it on porpoise."

Ha ha haaa

  • Blue and cranberry colored baseball cap Hernandez was reportedly wearing outside a nightclub
  • 3 different calibers of ammunition in a bedroom nightstand

We have reached out to his attorney for comment, according to Berman.
