Bride-to-be Becomes a Hero

An engagement photo shoot in Pennsylvania comes to an abrupt end when the bride-to-be suddenly becomes a hero.

Becki Salmon and her fiancé Matt Werner were posing for engagement photos when a little boy playing in the background wanders too far into the creek.

Salmon jumped to action.

"His head went back, he was bobbing up and down," she says. "I knew that he was going under. If I had had my wedding dress on that day that's what I would have been in that water."

Salmon is a trained lifeguard and paramedic. Because of her instinct, she never thought twice.

"She's been very humble through this process and she's not wanted to take the credit that she deserves but she definitely deserves the recognition," says Werner.

Military Crackdown on Muslim Brotherhood

CNN is following the latest in Egypt where tensions simmered overnight.

On Wednesday, the Egyptian military removed President Mohamed Morsy from power, then installed the country’s chief judge Adly Mansour as interim president the following day.

The military has since been cracking down on supporters of Morsy. Both the deposed leader and several top leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood are now in custody and facing charges.

In return, the defiant Muslim Brotherhood is calling on its supporters to protest today, calling it “Friday of Rejection.”

CNN's Reza Sayah is in Cairo with more from the ground.

“More than 100 injured overnight as supporters and opponents of Mohamed Morsy and his Muslim Brotherhood movement clashed in three districts,” Sayah reports, “including the ousted president's hometown.”

With pro-Morsy demonstrations already underway in some areas now, “all of Egypt bracing is itself for what today could bring,” Sayah says.

Trayvon Martin's Mother on the Stand

The prosecution is expected to wrap up its case in the George Zimmerman trial today.

The mother of Trayvon Martin, Sybrina Fulton, could take the witness stand in what is expected to be the most emotional day in the trial.

Fulton may be speaking about screams heard on the 911 tapes to determine whether her son is the one crying out for help.

CNN's George Howell
is live in Sanford, Florida covering the trial.

“That is exactly what prosecutors are banking on,” Howell says.

"Who would better know their child's cries for help, better than a mother? They hope that resonates with the jury of six women, five of them, mothers.”

Judge Deborah Nelson had ruled out forensic testimony from voice recording experts to determine the answer. “But left the door open for someone more familiar with the person's voice to identify it,” Howell says.

A mother could be that someone.

“Analysts say the defense may choose not to cross examine," Howell reports, "instead it's likely they'll call on George Zimmerman's father to counter testify.”

Ultimately the jury of 6 women will have to decide.
