The earthquake death toll in China's southwestern Sichuan Province is now 56,000 with another 25,000 unaccounted for. CBS sent Celia Hatton to meet the surviving injured. She visited Chengdu's Huaxi Hospital where a Dr Zeng Jiancheng's roll of patients, usually 200, is now 800. Hatton introduced us to He Chuan Tao, a smiling 22-year-old chemical factory worker: "When I woke up my legs were gone…I have had some bad luck but I was fortunate compared to others." Office worker Luo Ling told Hatton about her six colleagues: "They sent out a phone message calling for help but none came in time. They were found dead, all holding hands."
