News about the earthquake is devastating.
I want to share with you the following news.
(from the New York Times, 15 May 2008):
A woman who was eight months pregnant and trapped in rubble for 50 hours was pulled to safety in Dujiangyan, the A.P. [Associated Press] reported. Another woman was also rescued shortly afterward.
Safety officials were able to speak to the pregnant woman, Zhang Xiaoyan, while she was trapped, but rescue efforts had to proceed slowly for fear that the rubble above her would shift and collapse.
“It is very moving. It’s a miracle brought about by us all working together," Sun Guoli, the fire chief of Chengdu, told The A.P.
