Amid a massive recall involving ignition switches and the scandal over the long delay in doing so, Mary Barra, the CEO of General Motors, appeared before a House committee on Wednesday.

Lawmakers demanded more answers from the GM CEO, and victims' family members and survivors of crashing involving the GM cars had their say as well.

The emotional news conference was held in Washington, and among those who took the podium during the conference was local attorney Robert Hilliard and his clients.
