(AP) Endurance swimmer Diana Nyad (NY'-ad) is more than three-quarters of the way through her marathon Manhattan swim to benefit victims of Superstorm Sandy.


Nyad started the 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. Contributors make donations anytime during her swim.


Just after 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nyad had been in the pool for more than 39 hours and had raised more than $72,000.


Last month, the 64-year-old New York native became the first person confirmed to have swum from Havana to Key West, Fla., without a shark cage.
