Haitian woman found alive after 10 days in rubble

Makeshift tents cover the field of the soccer stadium in Haitian capital Port-au-Prince on January 15, 2010. A 69-year old Haitian woman has been pulled from the rubble near the stadium, 10 days after a killer earthquake.  

A 69-year-old Haitian woman has been pulled from the rubble 10 days after Haiti’s killer earthquake, but a doctor treating her says she is in bad condition and may not survive.

Dr. Ernest Benjamin tells The Associated Press that “There is very little hope, but we are trying to save her life.” Doctors are treating her at Haiti’s General Hospital after she was freed from the rubble on Friday morning, giving her oxygen and intravenous fluids.

It was not clear exactly where she was freed, but doctors say the site is near the capital’s soccer stadium.
