The Trinidad North Steel Drum Band was stuck in traffic in Pennsylvania, but they wouldn't let the situation get them down.

Instead, they pulled out their musical instruments and lead a celebration on the highway.

Five Things to Know for Your New Day – Wednesday, October 8, 2014

A family questions the Dallas Ebola patient's medical care. Allegations against "7th Heaven" actor Stephen Collins are less than heavenly. And North Korean leader Kim Jong Un hasn't been seen in a month. Where is he?

It's Wednesday, and here are the "5 things to know for your New Day."


Shortchanged? Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States, got an experimental medicine nearly a week after being admitted to a hospital. Four other Ebola patients treated in the U.S. received theirs almost immediately. Duncan's family asks, why the difference? Duncan is Liberian and black. The others are white American citizens. The hospital says Duncan is receiving the same treatment any other patient would get. A possible reason for the difference: The hospitals that took care of the four other patients had substantial notice that patients were on their way. That wasn't the case with Duncan. Hospitals have to fill out special paperwork to get these sorts of drugs.
