Long Beach begins new boardwalk

About 1,000 attend Saturday's groundbreaking ceremony for the new Long Beach boardwalk. The city's oceanfront landmark was destroyed by superstorm Sandy, and officials have said its replacement will be sturdier against future storms. The $44.2-million project is expected to be completed by early November. Videojournalist: Jim Staubitser (April 27, 2013)
