USA: FLORIDA: USE OF ELECTRIC CHAIR UNDER REVIEW
TAPE_NUMBER: EF99/1204 IN_TIME: 03:21:38 - 09:16:48 LENGTH: 01:39 SOURCES: ABC RESTRICTIONS: No Access North America/Internet FEED: VARIOUS (THE ABOVE TIME-CODE IS TIME-OF-DAY) SCRIPT: English/Nat Florida should consider allowing lethal injections to keep capital punishment alive while the U-S Supreme Court reviews use of the electric chair. That is the opinion of a lawmaker who saw the state's last electrocution. The nation's high court agreed Tuesday night to review allegations that death in Florida's electric chair. At a press conference on Wednesday, Florida Governor Jeb Bush discussed the use of the state's electric chair. This after the U-S Supreme Court's decision to hear the constitutionality of electrocution for the first time in over a century. This stops the use of electric chairs for months. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The people of Florida have spoken on this issue repeatedly, and loudly and clearly, they support electrocution, they support the means that has been established for the completion for this sentence. I'm confident that the United States Supreme Court will, like the Florida Supreme Court has, uphold the constitution anality of Florida's electric chair. I believe that United States Supreme Court will see this exactly like the trial court as an argument over a nose bleed of a criminal who savagely murdered a pregnant woman and her two young daughters in 1983 and who was successful in delaying his own execution for sixteen years. U-S Supreme Court has never held a state's method of execution to be unconstitutional and I do not expect the court to do so here." SUPER CAPTION: Governor Jeb Bush, Florida Governor The decision made Tuesday granted an indefinite stay to a man that was scheduled to be electrocuted Wednesday morning and another one that was scheduled for Tuesday. This decision comes about four months after an inmate's nose bled after being electrocuted in Florida's chair. That was the third botched electrocution in the sunshine state in this decade. Two other times the headpiece worn by condemned killers burst into flames during electrocution in 1990 and 1997. Florida is one of the four states in the U-S that executes death row inmates by electrocution. The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in February and is expected to rule by June.

Wide shot of Florida Street SOCCER GREAT NETS JOB AS TV HOST Soccer legend Diego Maradona will launch a new career as a TV talk show host in Buenos Aires on Monday night. Maradona has asked fellow soccer great Pele to be his first guest on the show that is the talk of Argentina. Argentines have long claimed Maradona as the best soccer player of all time and Brazilians staunchly stand by Pele, but for the first time the two legends will be together to talk it out on-air in Maradona's prime-time show. Called 'La Noche del 10' - Spanish for 'The Night of 10' in reference to Maradona's famed number 10 soccer shirt - Monday night's premiere by the soccer great-turned-television host will also feature former Argentine tennis star Gabriela Sabatini and Italian actress Maria Grazia Cucinotta. Maradona says Monday's variety show will be the first in a regular series for local network Canal 13. Maradona was recently named a vice president of his beloved Boca Juniors soccer club, and his entry into prime-time television marks a return to the public limelight for the Argentinean since his retirement last decade amid cocaine addiction and grave health problems. The 45-year-old has recently dropped weight, unveiling a slimmer profile after stomach stapling surgery. He's also been jetting around the world, making appearances as a broadcast commentator at European soccer matches and showing up for celebrity charity events. Maradona led Argentina to victory at the 1986 World Cup, and went on to become one of the sport's greatest legends despite battling a cocaine addiction. In 1991, Maradona failed a drug test and was banned for 15 months. He retired from the sport in 1997. In 2000, he had what doctors described as a brush with death when he was hospitalised in the Uruguayan beach resort of Punta del Este with a heart doctors said was pumping at less than half its capacity. Blood and urine samples turned up traces of cocaine, authorities said. In need of rehabilitation, Maradona chose Cuba - in part out of his regard for Cuban President Fidel Castro. He also underwent a 12-day hospitalisation in Buenos Aires in April 2004 for what doctors described as heart and lung problems.

Various of Nyad getting medical treatment after coming ashore STORYLINE: Diana Nyad ended her fourth attempt to swim across the Straits of Florida on Tuesday, her decades-old dream thwarted, more than anything else, by jellyfish. Storms brewing around her and repeated jellyfish stings forced her out of the water, her crew said. She travelled by boat close to a rocky shoreline in Key West on Tuesday afternoon, just over 72 hours after setting out from Cuba. She made a final short swim to a waiting crowd. Nyad turns 63 on Wednesday and logged 41 hours and 45 minutes of swim time. Her lips swollen from jellyfish stings, she appeared weary as she was helped from the water at her arrival in the US, though she insisted her muscles weren't even sore. She was given asthma inhalers, oxygen and an intravenous drip, mostly out of sight of the gathering crowd. She all but ruled out a fifth try at attempting the crossing, though she also had ruled out a fourth one after failing last year. "I'm not a quitter, but the sport and this particular ocean are different than they used to be," she said. "These jellyfish are prolific. And, you know what? To me, there's no joy in that." Nyad plunged into the water on Saturday afternoon in Havana and lasted longer and made it further than on her previous attempts, her team said. She first tried the swim in 1978, in a shark cage. She tried twice last year, without a shark cage, but again and again the record eluded her. Australian Susie Maroney successfully swam the Straits in 1997, but she used a shark cage. In June, another Australian, Penny Palfrey, made it 79 miles (127 kilometres) towards Florida without a cage before strong currents forced her to abandon the attempt. Monday night proved the most challenging of all for Nyad, with team members fending off sharks, waves crashing in stormy weather, jellyfish sting after sting, and Nyad fighting off a lowered body temperature and the threat of hypothermia. Nyad had been training for three years for the attempt. She was accompanied by a support team in boats, and a kayak-borne apparatus shadowing her to keep sharks at bay by generating a faint electric field. A team of handlers was on alert to dive in and distract any sharks that made it through.

Exterior Miami International Airport STORYLINE: A wealthy Filipino businessman-turned-congressman who's accused of making illegal contributions to the Democratic Party has returned to the U-S to face an indictment in Miami. Mark Jimenez (HIM-en-enz) arrived at Miami International Airport Sunday night and was immediately taken to the Federal Detention Center in Miami, where he's scheduled to be processed and spend the night. Jimenez is set to make an initial appearance tomorrow before a U-S magistrate. Defence lawyers in Miami filed a motion Friday seeking Jimenez's release on 100-thousand dollar bond. He left the Philippines voluntarily on Thursday. According to fellow Philippine Congressman Presporo Pichay, Jimenez was shuttled first to Guam and then to Saipan, where a federal judge said he did not have jurisdiction over the case and that Jimenez had to be flown to Miami. Pichay said that during the flight Jimenez was given oxygen several times for a 'medical condition'. Jimenez was among at least 28 people charged by a Justice Department task force created by then-U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno in 1997 to investigate allegations of campaign violations. In other cases, 22 people were convicted, two are fugitives, one was acquitted, one was fined by the Federal Election Commission and another case is pending. Jimenez was Florida's largest donor to the national Democratic Party in 1996. Jimenez is accused of using corporate money to reimburse employees for illegal donations to former President Clinton and other candidates like Tom Strickland. He's accused of illegally routing 50-thousand dollars to the Democratic National Committee and more than 33-thousand dollars in donations to campaign committees

Close up Gibb laughing AMID TRIBUTES, BEREAVED GIBB BROTHERS VOW TO INVESTIGATE MAURICE'S DEATH Tributes continued to pour in from around the world on Monday for Maurice Gibb of the Bee Gees, who died at a Miami Beach hospital on Sunday aged 53. But his brothers say they want to know why he died after what should have been a routine operation. Fifty three year old Maurice was admitted to a Miami Beach hospital on Wednesday and on Thursday underwent emergency for a blocked intestine, shortly after suffering a heart attack. In an interview with the BBC, the Gibb brothers questioned his treatment, saying that the decision to operate so soon after a cardiac arrest was "questionable" and promised to make it their mission to find out what happened. The three brothers who made up legendary pop group came together for the last time at Maurice's bedside just hours before he died in Florida yesterday. A family statement issued immediately after his death said: "It is with great sadness and sorrow that we regretfully announce the passing of Maurice Gibb. "His love and enthusiasm and energy for life remain an inspiration to all of us. We will all deeply miss him." The brothers had been some of the best-known faces in show business for the last four decades. They started their singing careers in the 1950s, earning their name from a previous incarnation as the Brothers Gibb. Following a spell in Australia, where they gained their first recording contract, they returned to the UK in 1967 to critical acclaim. Their distinctive, close-harmony singing became their trademark and survived musical fashion and family rifts. Their hits include the soundtrack to the film of the disco phenomenon, Saturday Night Fever, in 1977 and a sequel, Stayin' Alive, in 1983. 'Saturday Night Fever' saw some of the group's most successful tracks such as 'Stayin' Alive,' 'How Deep Is Your Love' and 'Night Fever.' Their last album together was in 2001, entitled 'This Is Where I Came In.' The brothers had nine No. 1 songs, wrote dozens of hits for other artists, and sold more than 110 million records- placing them fifth in pop history behind Elvis Presley, the Beatles, Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney.
