First ferry distress call came from a passenger not the crew

"Help us. The boat is sinking" was the first message emergency responders on land received alerting them to a problem on board the South Korean ferry. That call came from a young passenger using his cell phone, not from the crew. Hours later the ship would sink with hundreds of people still on board. Kyung Lah has the latest on the effort to reach those passengers.

How can anyone survive a flight in the wheel well of a plane?

A California teen managed to expose a serious airport security flaw while pulling off a near medical miracle. He apparently stowed away in the wheel well of a flight from California to Hawaii. The 767 reached 38,000 feet during the five hour flight. Gary Tuchman went inside a wheel well to learn more.

Is it possible to survive a trip like that? Anderson asked Dr. Robert Schoene, a professor at University of Washington Medical School.
