'Bridge planned' in TransAsia Airways plane rescue effort

A plane carrying mostly Chinese tourists has crashed into a river in Taiwan, killing at least 23 people.

Dramatic video footage emerged showing the TransAsia Airways plane clipping a bridge as it came down shortly after take-off from a Taipei airport.

The BBC's Cindy Sui says that authorities at the scene are planning to build a new bridge in an attempt to get the plane out from the water.
