Boy Pulled From Nepal Earthquake Rubble After 5 Days



Emergency responders on Thursday rescued a teenage boy found alive after he spent five days trapped beneath rubble in Kathmandu. A USAID team worked for several hours to rescue the boy, and crowds erupted into cheers as he was finally carried away on a stretcher.

The boy was not very deep into the debris, but was trapped between two collapsed floors, said team leader Andrew Olvera.

The death toll from the 7.8-magnitude earthquake has topped 5,500 and injured 11,440 more. Read more at the BBC.
