Ten ambulances waited in a nearby road, closed to traffic to facilitate rescue operations. The workers asked for complete silence and for everyone to get off or sit down while the crews went up in atop the rubble of the building where the family was found to listen for any further sounds using an electronic detector. As the rescue efforts continued, a worker in the rubble shouted, “Take a deep breath if you can hear me.” Workers then halted their search when excavators arrived and scrambled up the rubble to start clearing it.
While many international rescue teams left the vast quake zone, local teams yesterday continued to search through the rubble of destroyed buildings, hoping to find more adversity-defying survivors. Experts say: Most relief efforts occur within 24 hours of the earthquake.
