Young girl rescued after 178 hours under rubble

Miray had been trapped in the ruins for 178 hours - seven-and-a-half days.

Video showed workers cheering and shouting "God is great" as she was lifted out of the darkness.

Several others were saved on Monday, including a 13-year-old boy trapped for 182 hours. But rescues are becoming rarer as the death toll passes 35,000.

This is partly due to limits on how long the human body can survive without water.

Other factors include how much space the trapped person has to breathe and how bad their injuries are, an emergency medicine specialist told the BBC.

Missing Kiribati fishermen rescued by FSM crew

The two I-Kiribati fishermen had been adrift in their dinghy for seven days when found by the crew of the Queen Elizabeth 959, a domestic fishing vessel from the FSM.

According to a press release from the FSM government, the pair are in good health and condition, and their boat was successfully taken aboard the Queen Elizabeth 959.

They had earlier been located by the aircrew of a Royal New Zealand Air Force P-3K2 Orion which flew from Auckland to mount a search of an area spanning 7,300 square miles.
