2:38 am
important, but what makes this case different is that dunking is prohibited in this particular kind of swim training. so we are told charges are possible. martha raddatz, abc news, washington. in california some parents are suing over a new law requiring mandatory vaccines for school children. the lawsuit claims the law violates the children's right to an education. they want the law suspended until the lawsuit plays out. last year governor jerry brown signed that law despite fierce opposition. parents who refuse vaccination for their kids may seek a medical exemption or opt for home schooling. a heart-stopping experience for a championship hang glider in norway. he's in the air as his hang glider snaps in two. a stunned crowd watches as he plunging toward the crowd. despite the malfunction, he's able to pull his emergency chute and land in the lake. he was rescued by boaters and he suffered minor injuries. he blames speed for the mishap.
