Diana Nyad on another marathon swim

New York City -- The 64-year-old woman who swam from Havana to Miami is taking a marathon Manhattan swim to benefit victims of Superstorm Sandy.
    
Diana Nyad started her 48-hour swim Tuesday morning in a 40-yard pool set up in Herald Square. Her aim is to raise money for people still struggling a year after Sandy.
    
Just before 3 a.m. Wednesday, Nyad had been in the pool for more than 18 hours and had raised over $54,600.
    
Last month, the native New Yorker became the first person confirmed to have swum from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage.
    
She told The Associated Press on Monday that one of her swimming companions in Manhattan will be a dog named Roscoe that survived Sandy's floodwaters.
