4 saved from rubble; more alive under market?
Edited on Sun Jan-17-10 10:51 AM by tabatha
PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - Rescuers pulled out four people from under the rubble overnight Sunday, including three at a supermarket where at least two more people might have survived in airpockets under five stories of pancaked concrete.

A girl, a boy and a woman were rescued at what had been the five-story supermarket, NBC's Kerry Sanders reported from Port-au-Prince after having watched rescue work there Saturday.

One official coordinating the rescue efforts there told Sanders that a text message believed sent from under the rubble indicated that "more than 60" people were alive there.

Officials later said that number was probably a mistake, but that in any case rescuers had located two more people and were working to free them.

The rescued woman was identified as Mireille Dittmer, a Haitian-born U.S. resident who was on a business trip when the quake hit Tuesday.

the pictures show what pancaking concrete looks like in real life.
