Transportation officials announced this week they had located the data recorder on the cargo ship, El Faro, which sank in some 15-thousand feet of water off the coast of the Bahamas.

Investigators found the recorder using technology built and operated by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

Kathryn Eident talked with James Kinsey, an associate scientist at the Institution about the kinds of technology they used.
