China sinking: Husband and daughter search for answers

Gao Ruihai and his daughter Gao Yuan have been searching for his wife Lu Yaping, who was a passenger on the Eastern Star which capsized on China's Yangtze River.

Rescuers have pulled dozens of bodies from the capsized cruise ship.

Hundreds of people are thought to have died, with only 14 of the 456 passengers known to have survived.

Gao Ruihai said he didn't know if his wife was dead or alive, and that he couldn't move on without knowing what happened to her.
