 Miracle as Two Women Pulled Out Alive Week After Haiti Quake
A full seven days after the devastating earthquake flattened huge swaths of the capital Port-au-Prince, two women have been pulled out alive from rubble in Haiti. Otteline Lozama was pulled from the rubble of a Port-au-Prince shopping centre, while Anna Zizi was rescued by Mexican firefighters at about 3:30 p.m.local time.

She was found alive and singing in the rubble of Port-au-Prince's Roman Catholic cathedral.

Rescue workers wept and hugged each other as Zizi, caked in debris and dust, was placed on a makeshift stretcher, put on a drip, covered with a heat-conserving wrap and driven by truck to a hospital, witnesses said.

"It was an amazing thing to witness, no one could believe she was still alive," said Sarah Wilson, of British charity Christian Aid.

Haitian officials have put the death toll so far at 75,000 but have warned that 200,000 may have died.
