Hiker hopes to complete historic Amazon River trek on Monday

After hiking along the Amazon River for more than two years, Ed Stafford is suddenly in a rush.

The native Brit, who set out to become the first person to walk all of the river's roughly 4,000 miles more than two years ago, is hoping to finish his hike on Monday, in time to catch his scheduled flight home to Leicestershire from Brazil.

Despite collapsing from exhaustion on a roadside Sunday morning, Stafford is confident he'll make the plane.
