The 64-year-old woman who swam from Cuba to Florida launched a 48-hour swim maration Tuesday in a Manhattan pool to benefit victims of Superstorm Sandy.

Wearing a pink swim cap, Diana Nyad dove into the 40-yard pool set up in Herald Square and began doing laps shortly before 9 a.m. Her aim is to raise money for people still struggling a year after Sandy.
