Man Rescued After 60 Hours Trapped Under Rubble

Rescuers are using sniffer dogs and heat-seeking equipment in the search for more survivors from Sunday’s landslide in China.

A man has been reportedly pulled out alive after spending 60 hours stuck underneath a mountain of rubble from a landslide in Southern China.

More than 30 buildings were buried in an industrial district on Sunday, when a man-made mound of earth and debris collapsed after heavy rain.

Seven people have been rescued so far, while diggers are combing through the rubble hunting for more. Seventy-six people are still missing.

Rescuers are using sniffer dogs and heat-seeking equipment in the search for more survivors.

The landslide was caused by heavy rains in the region destabilizing a 100-metre man-made mountain of dirt and construction waste.
