Survivor Found 8 Days After Japan Quake
From Sky News:
A man has been pulled alive from rubble in Japan eight days after the country was hit by a massive earthquake and tsunami, according to reports.
The young man is said to have been found in the city of Kesennuma, in Miyagi prefecture, which was one of the hardest-hit regions.
A military official was reported saying the man was transferred to a hospital, where he is too weak to talk.
Japanese news agency Kyodo reports that man was in his 20s.
The rescue is one of few reported after the disaster and experts believe the power of the tsunami, triggered by the magnitude 9 earthquake, probably pulled many people out to sea.
Japan’s police agency has said nearly 7,200 are dead and more than 10,900 are missing.
