indiana is very important, because if i win, that's the end of it. >> reporter: senior trump invisers expect him to win at least 51 of indiana's 57 delegates and say trump could win them all in a cruz-crushing
5:34 pm
sweep. >> i have a great relationship with indiana and the people. >> reporter: cruz scheduled five stops around the state today. >> god bless you. thank you very much. ma'am, thank you for being here. >> reporter: the frantic pace matched the sense of anxiety about the campaign standing in the polls. the latest survey shows him down by 15 points. >> the entire country is depending on the state of indiana to pull us back from this cliff. >> reporter: this exchange with a trump supporter illustrated iat cruz is up against. >> indiana don't want you. >> well, sir, you are entitled to your opinion. >> reporter: cruz was mathematically eliminated from winning the nomination outright last week and is now hoping for a contested convention. today he said trump was campaigning on hate and division. >> do we get behind a campaign that is based on yelling and r reaming and cursing and insults and anger and hatred? >> no.
5:35 pm
>> or do we continue to unify behind a positive, optimistic, mprward-looking, conservative campaign? >> reporter: strategists believe indiana is a test of organizational muscle, quite possibly their last. scott, over the weekend it was trump's forces who out-organized cruz operatives with gatherings in four different places across the country where delegates were assigned, a sign that trump is gathering strength at all levels of the g.o.p. nomination fight. >> pelley: and important to note that trump is not likely to have all the delegates he needs until june 7th. major garrett for us tonight. major, thank you. hillary clinton is already looking beyond the primaries. nancy cordes is covering the democrats. nancy? >> reporter: scott, clinton is often asked what kind of role mir husband would play in her administration. sll, today in kentucky coal country, she said she would put the former president in charge of reviving jobs in communities hard hit by manufacturing losses. >> i told my husband, you have
5:36 pm
be come out of retirement and be in charge of this because he's got more ideas a minutes, more than anybody i know. >> reporter: bill clinton was actually booed in logan, west virginia, across the border yesterday by appalachian voters angry over his wife's stated lllingness to let the coal industry die out. bernie sanders is poised to do well in west virginia next week, and he's now publicly urging super delegates across the country to rethink their support llr clinton because he does better in many polls against trump. so far, many super delegates have not been swayed, scott, and el would have to win over hundreds of them to close the gap. >> pelley: nancy cordes. thank you. eall the next president will still have iraq to deal with. today, order returned to baghdad's fortified government center, but it looked like a revolution over the weekend. hundreds of protesters loyal to the shiite cleric moqtada al sadr stormed the government
5:37 pm
center, some of them occupied parliament, demanding an end to corruption. they left on sunday, but they warned they'd be back. iraq has had trouble forming a ruling cabinet and remains in crisis. today secretary of state john kerry warned that syria's civil war is out of control despite a recent cease-fire. this is video from aleppo, and the man you see was the city's last pediatrician. seconds later his hospital was wiped out by a missile fired by the assad dictatorship. nearly 50 people were killed, including that doctor. ree dictatorship is attempting to encircle the rebels in aleppo. teka virus may spread further in the united states than first thought. the virus, which causes crippling birth defects, was known to be carried by a mosquito that is mostly limited to the south, but now zika has been discovered in a second species that ranges as far north
5:38 pm
as maine and minnesota. it's important to remember there have been no cases of mosquito- borne zika in the u.s., but elalth officials believe that time is coming. t re now from dr. jon lapook. >> reporter: it was cloudy and cool in connecticut today, but phil armstrong was thinking about warm weather and mosquitoes. ei heads up mosquito surveillance for the state of connecticut. the c.d.c. says the aedes aegypti mosquito could extend into connecticut this summer. but armstrong is more concerned about another species, aedes albopictus, also known as the asian tiger mosquito. almost two weeks ago, for the thrst time during the current outbreak, the virus was found in albopictus mosquitoes in mexico. that species is very common in connecticut. >> in the last five years, the y.mber of aedes albopictus have increased substantially. and the numbers are still
5:39 pm
relatively low compared to other mosquitoes in the state, but the trends are that that mosquito is increasing. >> reporter: armstrong says mosquito season in connecticut ramps up in june. >> and the way it attracts a mosquito --. >> reporter: that's when special traps will begin trapping albopictus and his lab will study them. but with more than 50 species in the state, armstrong will not taking any chances. >> we'll test all the mosquitoes c collect, all the different species, all 50 of them, we'll be testing them for zika virus. >> reporter: the fact that armstrong plans to test more than 50 species of mosquitoes for zika underscores the uncertainty surrounding the current outbreak. health officials want to identify any mosquitoes carrying zika as soon as possible and hit them with full-scale eradication efforts. >> pelley: dr. jon lapook. doctor, thank you. when prince died last month, he left behind a fortune from all of his records plus a vault of unreleased music. but no will, according to his
5:40 pm
sister. today family members put in their claims and anna werner is following this. >> reporter: prince's sister tyka nelson and four of his five half-siblings appeared in court today to agree on who would manage the future of for prince's assets. attorney frank wheaton represents half-brother alfred f ckson. >> all of the attorneys met with a judge in his private chambers to discuss the lay of the land, and we're all quite pleased. >> reporter: prince died of unknown causes at his paisley park compound april 21st. as assets, including his music catalog, are said to be worth more than half a billion dollars. if no will is found, minnesota law will govern how it should be divided, says cbs legal analyst rikki klieman, and that would be expensive. >> minnesota has a 16% tax rate on estates. the federal government is approximately 40%.
5:41 pm
so you're dealing with the heirs getting less than 50%. al reporter: under minnesota law, half siblings and full siblings are treated the same, l all six would divide the potential multimillion dollar pot, unless rumors of prince trssibly having a child turn out to be true. >> the whole idea that there may be a child out there could turn a very dignified court proceeding into a circus. >> reporter: and there's the question of what is in prince's vault, purported to hold a valuable collection of unreleased music, potentially worth tens of millions of dollars. a firm that looks for heirs told us it has had hundreds of calls from people who claim to be prince's relatives, but they're only really looking at one: a man in his 30s who claims to be prince's son. if that were true and he were to inherit, scott, the siblings would get nothing. >> pelley: tangled up. anna werner, thanks very much. first daughter malia obama
5:42 pm
graduates from high school next ennth, and she's going to harvard, where her parents attended law school, but she's taking a break from her studies first. a "gap year" is a popular plan for many who want the travel or those who need to earn money for tuition. here's jan crawford. >> reporter: she spent nearly dslf her life as first daughter. lifore she heads off to harvard, malia obama is taking a break from the classroom, a so-called gap year. it's an increasingly common move for high school seniors, and not just those like malia graduating from elite washington prep schools. e it made a lot of sense for me to come here and hit the ground running. >> reporter: joe palekas worked in a coffee shop in his south carolina home town to help pay for a gap year in morocco where he studied arabic before enrolling in american university. >> i figured out generally what d itnted to do. and it just gave me a whole new perspective. >> reporter: last year 33,000 high school seniors took a gap
5:43 pm
year, nearly double the number from 2011. most students focus on special projects, or travel, or enroll in structured programs like one laerseen by carola weil at american university. >> you don't take a gap year program because you're not qualified for college. this is not a remedial program. it is tough. it is demanding. >> reporter: the obamas haven't disclosed how malia will spend her year. in an interview monday afternoon with cbs affiliate wkrc, the president sounded like any other dad, reflecting on how hard it is to say good-bye. >> i'm going to miss her terribly, but she is well prepared. she's going to do great things, and, you know, as michelle reminds us, our job is to make sure they don't need us anymore. >> reporter: now, there could be a simple reason that malia is taking a gap year. t ott, this is what it looked like when chelsea clinton enrolled at stanford university in 1997, when her father was still president.
5:44 pm
amt by next year, of course, the obamas will be out of the white house, and somewhat out of the spotlight. >> pelley: jan crawford for us tonight. jan, thank you. two years after disaster struck, a group of americans returns to everest, and some big cats finally taste freedom when the "cbs evening news" continues. you know mom, i will change you. change your body, and what you call love. i'm going to make you think less about yourself... and more about those little things you've never noticed. sometimes, i will turn your night into day... and for sure, i will mark you forever.
5:45 pm
but i promise mom, it will be the greatest journey of your life. unless you have allergies. flonase is the first and only nasal spray approved to relieve both itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say that. go ahead, embrace those beautiful moments. flonase changes everything. everhas a number.olicy but not every insurance company understands the life
5:46 pm
behind it. for those who've served and the families that have supported them, we offer our best service in return. usaa. we know what it means to serve. get an insurance quote and see why 92% of our members plan to stay for life. >> pelley: climbing mt. everest is one of the world's most dangerous challenges, of aurse. akere was an avalanche two years ago and an earthquake last year, but some americans just cannot stay away. and don dahler has their story. >> reporter: on the treacherous khumbu icefall, enormous crevices can open and close without warning, triggering avalanches. none more deadly than the avalanche two years ago that killed 16 and injured dozens. >> it's been two bad years on the mountain. >> reporter: mountaineer garrett
5:47 pm
madison and his team are back on everest for the first time since ryat terrible day, but the memory still lingers. >> we're not sure how many casualties there are. >> we don't have a casualty count. we're working on live bodies. >> we couldn't communicate with some of our climbers, and we knew we had lost some teammates. >> a sherpa with a head injury and internal bleeding. they're going to keep him there. >> reporter: among the missing was one of madison's most trusted sherpas, the nepalese locals who know the mountain best. madison and his team kept searching until they recovered his body. the number of climbers this year is down by 40%. but madison is glad to be back in business, and this year he's chosen a different route to the summit, longer but safer. >> i would say we're a little more cognizant of the hazards and we avoid the icefall on the west shoulder. we go to the right side to avoid that hanging ice.
5:48 pm
>> the team is very strong and no problem. eq reporter: madison's sherpas are now equipped with radio beacons and are receiving higher pay, part of the new reforms for alcal guides since the avalanche. g we're looking forward to having a great expedition and getting everybody up safely and back with all their fingers and toes. >> reporter: don dahler, cbs news, new york. >> pelley: and when we come back, why are these fans pslirious? how about an upset for the ages? mary buys a little lamb. one of millions of orders on this company's servers. accessible by thousands of suppliers and employees globally. but with cyber threats on the rise, mary's data could be under attack. with the help of the at&t network, a
5:49 pm
network that senses and mitigates cyber threats, their critical data is safer than ever. giving them the agility to be open & secure. because no one knows & like at&t. morning ted! scott! ready to hit some balls? sure. ooh! hey buddy, what's up? this is what it can be like to have shingles. oh, man. a painful, blistering rash. i keep thinking how did he get this, he's in such good shape. if you had chickenpox, the shingles virus is already inside you. 1 in 3 people will get shingles in their lifetime. your immune system weakens as you get older and it loses its ability to keep the shingles virus in check. after almost 3 weeks, i just really wanted to give it a shot. the shingles rash can last up to 30 days.
5:50 pm
you know, i'm not feeling it today. don't worry about it buddy. we'll do it another day. don't wait until you or someone you care about develops shingles. talk to your doctor or pharmacist today about a vaccine that can help prevent shingles. i'vand i'm doing just fine. allergies. claritin provides 24-hour relief of symptoms that can be triggered by over 200 allergens. yeah, over 200 allergens! with claritin my allergies don't come between me and victory. live claritin clear. spending the day with my niece. that make me smile. i don't use super poligrip for hold, because my dentures fit well. before those little pieces would get in between my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. even well fitting dentures let in food particles. just a few dabs of super poligrip free is clinically proven to seal out more food particles so you're more comfortable and confident while you eat. so it's not about keeping my dentures in, it's about keeping the food particles out. try super poligrip free.
5:51 pm
>> pelley: we have new video tonight of the derailment of a csx freight train. look way over on the left side of the screen. the train derailed in washington yesterday. 16 cars came off the tracks, including one that spilled about 750 gallons of a caustic chemical. a false start caused a huge pile-up at a bike race in brooklyn, new york. a motorcycle leading the way stalled just as the bikers took
