Audio slide show: Beneath the glitz
Under Las Vegas is a vast expanse of crisscrossing flood-control tunnels that are thought to shelter about 300 homeless people from the Mojave Desert's unrelenting conditions.
Several times a month, members of the outreach group HELP of Southern Nevada head underground, armed with flashlights and offers of housing and medical help -- trying to get people out of the tunnels. Since March 2009, the group has coaxed about 18 people out of the tunnels, each success prodding the team to return.
