 A 4-month-old infant was rescued from the wreckage 22 hours after a 7.8 magnitude earthquake destroyed surrounding towns last weekend.
Nepalese newspaper Kathmandu Today published the photos of a debris-laden baby boy being recovered from a destroyed building in Bhaktapur. Soldiers initially missed the infant during their search, but returned after hearing faint cries from below the rubble.
The baby boy is in stable condition in a hospital and has not sustained any serious or internal injuries. The whereabouts of the child\’s parents are still unknown.
A 7.8 magnitude earthquake killed over 5,000 people Saturday. The death toll is expected to double in coming days as rescue and relief efforts continue.
