Nyad Makes History 9/2/13
KEY WEST, Florida - Diana Nyad has become the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without the help of a shark cage.
The 64-year-old Nyad stepped ashore in Key West just before 2 p.m. EDT, about 53 hours after she began her swim in Havana on Saturday.
It was Nyad's fifth try to complete the approximately 110-mile swim. She tried three times in 2011 and 2012. She had also tried in 1978.
