Nepal Earthquake: 101-Year-Old Man Rescued After Buried One Week Under Rubble

From Aww

There have been a few miracles to come out of the devastating aftermath of the earthquake in Nepal, and a 101-year-old man being pulled out of the rubble alive is one of them. So far, the death toll from the quake is about 8000.

Funchu Tamang was rescued on Saturday and pulled from the rubble which was once his home.

The 101-year-old was airlifted to a district hospital in the Nuwakot district – about 80 kilometres from Kathmandu – with only minor injuries.

Police have confirmed he is now in a stable condition.

“He was brought to the district hospital in a helicopter. His condition is stable,” local police officer, Arun Kumar Sign, told AFP.

“He has injuries on his left ankle and hand. His family is with him.”

 

Three women were also rescued on Sunday while an 11-year-old girl was pulled out from under the rubble by the Nepal Army.

A powerful image of the rescued young girl emerged on Twitter on April 30, after she’d spent 90 hours trapped under the rubble in the town of Bhaktapur.

 

 

And as a little boy, as young as four-months-old was lifted into the air by rescuers after spending 22 hours trapped after the quake, surrogate babies as young as six weeks were flown back to Israel to their surrogate parents.

It may just be one life saved in the wake of government warnings over 10,000 have probably been killed by the earthquake, but it is one less life taken much too soon.
