TV appeal finds baby's parents

The parents of a baby boy found in Dujiangyan have had an emotional reunion with their son after a TV appeal.

The child was recovered from rubble after Monday's earthquake in China and staff at Chengdu Children's Hospital made a plea to find his family.

They were reunited the following day, with the baby's father crying "Yes, yes! It's him!" when he saw the child.

The mother explained that they became separated when the Sichuan earthquake struck: "We ran back to look but didn't find him".
