Hope in Haiti as rescuers pluck survivors from the rubble


International rescue teams scouring the remains of the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince are still managing to pull people from the rubble days after Tuesday’s quake.

The co-owner of the Montana Hotel, Nadine Cardoso, was plucked from the concrete.

Elsewhere American teams searching the city’s university managed to recover a young woman.

However, the labour and emotion is taking its toll on the rescuers, as Lieutenant Evan Lewis from Fairfay County,USA explains:

“ That big balloon of pressure that you’ve had, its all-the air has gone out of the balloon. That’s when the fatigue hits and you feel exhausted.”

Another lucky individual rescued in what is becoming a race against time is the Port-au-Prince income tax director.
