Russian Emergency Situations Ministry workers rescued a woman from the ruins of a residential building in Pakistan
Russian Emergency Situations Ministry workers rescued a woman from the ruins of a residential building in the Pakistani city of Muzaffarabad the fourth day after a devastating earthquake hit the region. The woman had been lying under rubble in the building's basement. Rescue workers made a hole in the floor, crawled into the basement, and brought the woman to safety. The woman, 70, is in good condition with no serious injuries but was taken to the hospital for observation. This is the first survivor to be saved by Russian workers, who have been involved in rescue operations since Monday. The 7.6 earthquake hit South Asia Saturday, killing between 30,000 and 40,000 people in Pakistan alone. Russia has sent four planeloads of rescue workers and special equipment to Pakistan, Emergency Situations Minister Sergei Shoigu said Wednesday, adding that Russian rescue crews were working together with their colleagues from Italy, Germany, and France. So far Russia has contributed $200,000 to the relief effort in Pakistan.
