A potential breakthrough in the mystery of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

The Chinese government has released satellite images of what it called "a suspected crash area at sea".

The images show 3 floating objects, ranging in size from 43' x 59' to 79' x 69'.

They were captured on March 9, the day after the plane went missing.

The development comes amid growing frustrations among families of the 239 people on board.

Earlier Wednesday, officials doubled the size of the search area to 27,000 nautical square miles.

The debris captured by the Chinese satellite was found southeast of where the plane was once believed to have changed course.

For now, family members continue to wait.

One man's brother is among the missing.

His hope hangs on, not knowing.

He waits for a miracle. Malaysian investigators are waiting for help.
