Demo shows how MH370 passengers' phones can be key to solving mystery

Did passengers on board missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 send text messages the night the plane vanished?

Those final words could solve the mystery of what happened.

To simulate conditions in the ocean, our Ted Rowlands submerged his phone in a salt water pressure chamber for over a week. He was able to successfully retrieve text messages, photos, and even video from the phone.

Rowlands and Computer Forensics Expert Chad Gough demonstrates how cell phone messages can be retrieved.
