Hundreds orphaned by Haiti earthquake

Despite miraculous stories of survival and the gradual increase in aid as the dust settles after the Haiti earthquake hundreds of children find themselves orphaned.

Haitian officials say the death toll from the quake was likely to be between 100,000 and 200,000, and that 75,000 bodies had already been buried in mass graves. An estimated 1.5 million are homeless.

Nick Davis reports.
