Man learns diving to look for wife lost in tsunami

Yasuo Takamatsu takes off his gear after taking a diving lesson at a bay in northern Japan. Nearly three years after the earthquake and tsunami disaster that struck Japan's northern pacific coastline, Takamatsu is learning to scuba dive in hopes of finding his wife. She's one of the 2,636 people who remain missing, their bodies presumably swept out to sea.
