News : Haiti man 'survives 27 days under quake rubble'

A Haitian man has survived 27 days under the rubble since the devastating earthquake that struck the country on 12 January.
The 28-year old man was reported to be dehydrated and wasted. His family is said to be very devastated and emotional, especially hi mother.

According to the BBC correspondence the man's mother broke down while discussing her son's apparent rescue and said she had not seen him since the quake.
The man is thought to have been pulled out from under the rubble of a building in Port-au-Prince on Monday. He was treated at a field hospital at the airport.


Doctors said he was dehydrated and malnourished, and that his condition suggested he had been trapped for a long time.
Dr Dushyantha Jayaweera, of the University of Miami field hospital, told Reuters TV that his case was "unusual but not impossible."
"He was quite dehydrated and he was wasted, so there are certain things that suggest that it's true." Dr Jayaweera described the man's condition as "reasonable".
"He's still sick, he cannot talk to anybody, but we are very optimistic with the condition of the patient."

Indeed, Dr Jayaweera’s sentiments seem fair enough. According to the man’s brother, his 27-day ordeal was only possible because someone had given him water and that, to a certain extent, explains his survival.

More than 150,000 people were killed in the earthquake, with 1.5 million left homeless, but it is estimated less than 140 people were pulled alive from the rubble in Haiti's capital.
