Malaysia Airlines Flight 370: Underwater technology used to search the ocean floor

Satellites images taken four days ago show two objects located about 14 miles from each other in the Indian Ocean.

The larger object is 79 feet long and the other is roughly 16 feet, and they are believed to be possible debris from Flight 370.

That is a possibility. Each wing of the missing plane is about 81 feet long.

Australia's Prime Minister was confident when he released the images Thursday, calling then "new and credible information" in the search.

The area is remote, far from regular shipping channels where crews might have seen the debris earlier.

Recovery crews will be up against the elements and a search area that could be more than two miles under water.

CNN's Rosa Flores is OutFront with more on how the crews do it.
