There they'll be interviewed to answer a pressing question: did the crash come at the end of a hijacking or did the passengers try to defect to the United States? LT. CMDR. RON LEBRECHT, U.S. COAST GUARD, paraphrased, that will give us the platform to interview them. But officials are almost convinced the ill-fated flight was a flight to freedom. One person was killed; another severely injured after the stolen crop duster flew from Cuba, ran out of fuel and ditched into the rough waters of the Gulf. Officials say its still too early to determine what will be done with the survivors. US law allows Cubans to apply for residency, IF they reach American soil. But the survivors of Tuesday's crash were picked up in international waters. That's put the treatment of would-be Cuban exiles, like Elian Gonzalez, back in the spotlight.

Fornal and five other stroke patients have been treated with T.N.K.since July when UCSD started testing the clot-busting drug. It's believed to be six to ten times more powerful than the drug TPA that's currently used to help stroke victims with fewer complications and side affects. Although the study is in its beginning stages...the early results indicate TNK is safer than TPA...giving doctors new hope.
Reseachers say finding a treatment to reverse the paralyzing affects of stroke is vital. Every minute...someone in the United States experiences a stroke and each year 160-thousand americans die from one.
Eleven days after suffering a stroke and receiving a dose of TNK...Fornal returned to work. Her amazing recovery is encouraging news for reseachers and an obvious relief for her children.
