PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) - U.S. teams with search dogs have found and rescued a 16-year-old Dominican girl who was trapped for five days in a small hotel that crumbled in Haiti's capital.
A U.N. spokeswoman says "there are still people living" in
collapsed buildings. And she says people may still be alive there
for another day. She says more than 1,700 rescue workers have saved more than 70 lives since the quake.
Earlier today, in the U.N. headquarters destroyed in the quake, rescuers lifted a Danish staff member alive from the ruins. It
happened just 15 minutes after U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon
visited. The chief of the U.N. mission there and at least 39 other
staff members were killed.
And at a collapsed supermarket where search teams from Florida and New York worked overnight, a policeman reported that three people had been pulled out alive early Sunday morning.
