10 Days After Quake, Israelis Rescue Man In Haiti

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — An Israeli search team has pulled a 22-year-man from the rubble a staggering 10 days after an earthquake leveled much of the Haitian capital.

Video of the rescue obtained by The Associated Press shows rescue workers pulling the man from a crevasse in the wreckage of what had been a three-story home.

A statement from the Israeli Defense Force says local residents led the team to the site Friday, adding that the man was in stable condition at an Israeli field hospital in Port-au-Prince.

Shirtless, the man appears either unconscious or barely conscious and covered in dust as he is hoisted onto a stretcher.
