This is Sunday's edition of -- The Pulse.
Number five -- Vice President Joe Biden marched in a historic civil rights event. The VP joined thousands of others walking over the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama. The annual bridge crossing jubilee event reflects "Bloody Sunday," a day back in 1965 where voting rights marchers were beaten by state troopers on their way to Montgomery. Biden said marchers "broke the back of the forces of evil," but that challenges to voting rights still continue today.
Number four -- Queen Elizabeth II is hospitalized with a case of the stomach flu. The British monarch is expected to stay at the London's King Edward hospital for at least two days. A Buckingham Palace spokesman said the 86-year-old queen is suffering from symptoms of gastroenteritis and that she has been hospitalized as a precautionary measure.
Number three -- A California nursing home is coming under fire after an elderly woman dies when the staff fails to administer CPR. 87-year-old Lorraine Bayless collapsed in the Glenwood Gardens dining room Tuesday morning. Despite a 911 dispatcher's pleading, the nurse on the phone refused to administer CPR, saying that it was against the facility's policy. Bayless later died at the hospital.
Number two -- A crew started demolition in Florida at the home on top of a sinkhole that claimed one man's life. Hundreds of spectators watched as a backhoe plunged through the roof and ripped down walls. Crews helped salvage valuables, including military medals and an American flag, but authorities said it will not be possible to recover the body of 37-year-old Jeffrey Bush. He is the only one of six family members at home who was unable to escape when the sinkhole opened Thursday night.
Number one -- A 2-year-old Mississippi girl is the first child to be "functionally cured" of HIV. Researchers said they believe early intervention, in this case within 30 hours of birth, with three anti-viral drugs was key to the outcome. A "functional cure" is when the presence of the virus is so small, lifelong treatment is not necessary and standard clinical tests cannot detect the virus in the blood. Doctors are hoping future studies will allow this same outcome consistently.
