Search for Flight 370: Keeping 'most promising lead' alive

(CNN) – As day breaks in the search zone for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, crews are once again narrowing their search area from the previous day.

They are using every aircraft, ship, and gadget they can deploy – including Australian ship Ocean Shield, which is carrying an advanced pinger-locator from the U.S. Navy.

That ship picked up what could have been two separate signals from the black boxes. But those pings have not been heard since.

And there's a very real danger that the batteries on the pingers are out of power.

CNN's René Marsh reports crews are in a frantic race to keep alive their most promising lead yet.
