Parents hope Thailand's 'frozen' child will live again

Earlier this year, two-year-old Thai girl Matheryn Naovaratpong became the youngest person to be cryogenically frozen, her brain being preserved at the point of death.

Her parents say they are "100% convinced" future medical advances mean she will one day be restored to life.

They told the BBC's Jonathan Head it was their love for their daughter that drove them to seek this route.
