Chile Survival Stories Amid Looting, Desperation

Amid significant turmoil through mountainous and coastal cities in Chile, there are stories of hope and survival.

Impact reported yesterday on Alberto Rozas and his daughter, who fell 13 stories when they're building collapsed, and survived.

Concepcion resident Ricardo Leon told BBC News that debris in his home crushed his baby's crib and broke it in half; luckily, his young child was in bed with her mother.

CNN found one man who cried when his young son was found alive in the rubble.
