Plus: How to Escape a Submerged Car
And: The Comeback of a Coma Survivor
In an exclusive television interview with ABC News' Diane Sawyer, Nicole Richie speaks candidly about why this particular constellation of young celebrity girls have behaved badly and how she thinks her actions have affected those girls who look up to her. She also addresses her pregnancy, her upcoming jail time, what happened the night she was arrested for driving in the wrong direction on the interstate and more. The interview airs on "20/20," FRIDAY, AUGUST 3 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
And: In light of yesterday's tragic bridge collapse in Minneapolis, "20/20" re-airs a Jay Schadler report from a "Primetime Thursday" Survival Challenge on how to escape safely from a submerged car. With Florida rescue officials on hand, Schadler experiences the horror of being submerged in a car. The experts tell Schadler that having a plan in mind before an accident like this occurs can mean the difference between life and death.
Plus: After a horrific car accident 10 years ago, former high school cheerleader Amanda Edwards was trapped in a coma from which her doctor thought she would not recover. But as Bob Brown reports, after years of rehabilitation and re-learning basic skills, Amanda has made miraculous strides in her recovery.
