Parents fight for lung transplant for dying 10-year-old: "My child's civil rights are being violated"

10-year-old Sarah Murnaghan desperately needs a lung transplant.

The problem is there's not enough organ donations for children.

Even though she's at the top of the list for any pediatric lungs that may become available for transplant in her area, Sarah could die within weeks without a transplant.

Can the government step in to help? Jason Carroll has the story.
