What happens when landing gear fails

CNN's Brian Todd takes a look at the failure of the front landing gear on a Southwest 737 at LaGuardia Airport on Monday night. What does a pilot do if the landing gear fails, what are the potential outcomes when you land without a front wheel, and how serious a risk is that situation? Brian talks to a former 737 pilot and gets a cockpit view of the scenario.
