Flood Water Dangers

Authorities found the body of 17-year old William Mootz on Friday. Mootz had fallen into the Pitman Wash 48 hours earlier. We'll talk about what these search and rescue operations are like. We'll also look at safety precautions when heavy rains hit the area. Then we'll consider what flood waters do to the hundreds who are living in the tunnels below Las Vegas.
