Life in captivity for Cleveland women

An FBI agent tells CNN's Randi Kaye that Michelle Knight was beaten with hand weights while held captive for more than a decade in Ariel Castro's house. But she doesn't need facial reconstruction as previously reported.

The agent also clarified reports about a hierarchy among the women when they were in captivity. At the hospital they were walking around together and seemed equally concerned about each other.

The agent also mentioned that the only reason Gina DeJesus and Knight didn't follow Amanda Berry out of the house the day she escaped was because they feared Castro, and not because they didn't trust Berry.

Dancer: Fall made amputation seem real

A month after Adrianne Haslet-Davis' foot was amputated, the Boston bombing survivor describes the challenges she faces in an interview with Anderson Cooper. She says the hardest part is doing "simple things" like showering, going to the bathroom and getting ready - her daily routine.

Adrianne fell in her bedroom a few days ago directly on her tender wound and sensitive stitching. The incident made her new normal seem more real.

"I don't know if it was me just kind of realizing physically that my leg wasn't there anymore. But it was really hard for me. I think it sort of made me realize that I was a lot weaker than I thought I was ... a hard thing to think about," says Adrianne.

What really happened during manhunt for Boston bombing suspects

In the days after last month's Boston marathon bombings, the city was on edge. Residents were holed up in their homes, under strict orders not to leave. Investigators sifted through countless hours of surveillance images trying to determine who might have carried out this heinous attack.

Then came a breakthrough.

Three days after the April 15 attack, the FBI identified the bombing suspects captured in surveillance images near the finish line, later identified as Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

And a manhunt was on.

Boston Strong: Adrianne's Journey

Editor's note: Anderson Cooper is live from Boston tonight on the one month anniversary of the attack. He'll speak with Adrianne Haslet-Davis and show the first installment of a special series on her recovery.

We first met Adrianne Haslet-Davis a week after the Boston Marathon bombings. She had been standing so close to the second explosion that it actually launched her into the air.

“I remember the air hitting me and the impact of the air hitting my chest and stomach and flying through the air and then landing,” she said. “I sat up and tried to move, and I said … there's something wrong with my foot.”

The impact had blown away a large portion of her left foot. Without the heroic work of her husband Adam, who had just returned from a tour in Afghanistan with the Air Force, and first responders, she likely wouldn’t have survived.
