Thanks for staying up late with us. 360° will be coming your way at 11pm ET, following "Generation Islam." We're following a lot of breaking news. There's word that Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps has been involved in a car accident. Plus, we have new video of that mid-air collision over New York's Hudson River. And, two air traffic controllers have been suspended by the FAA. We'll tell you why.

Want to know what else we're covering? Read EVENING BUZZ

4) No links
5) Watch your language (keep it G-rated; PG at worst - and that includes $#&*)

    Nothing like a good bear video to end the evening. Thanks for the smiles....can't imagine ever seeing a bear "taking a dip" though....

    Ok, that's it....I'm with Erica. NO TURTLE MAN!

    My condolences too to Dr. Abuelaish. And as he said in his interview with you Anderson, our humanity brings us together. So we must stay with being compassionate and seeking understanding.

    The bear was having a wild day! No wilder than mine, I suppose.

    Good night everyone, peaceful night!
