South Asia earthquake / 'Miracle' girl pulled alive from rubble after
eight days / Declan Walsh / Guardian Weekly 21-27 October 2005

"Earthquake victims usually last no more than seven days. Children do
better thanks to their size and because their bodies are better at
'shutting down' and conserving energy.
Last Friday rescuers saved an 18-month-old girl. She was found in the
ruins of her home in the town of Balimang, in the North West Frontier
Province [of Pakistan]."
