A 101-year-old man was among three survivors discovered by rescue workers this weekend in the aftermath of last week’s devastating earthquake in Nepal, NPR reports. According to Agence France-Presse, Funchu Tamang sustained only minor injuries to his hand and ankle after a week spent in the rubble of his home.
“He was brought to the district hospital in a helicopter,” a local policeman told AFP. “His condition is stable.”
Just yesterday, a government spokesperson told CNN the chances of finding any more survivors in Nepal were “extremely slim,” saying, “It will be a miracle if anyone is found alive. But we have not completely given up yet and are continuing to look.”
