    Marathon swimmers Diana Nyad and Stella Taylor were reported to be in good spirits on Wednesday (16 August) despite failing in separate attempts to swim to Florida from Cuba and the Bahamas.

Miss Taylor was in the water for 33 hours before strong currents which continually pushed her off course forced her to abandon her swim. NBC's Fred Francis reports.
