Pupil pulled to safety in China after 80 hours

Its far too early to give up hope in finding survivors of China's immense (7.8 or 7.9 depending on the source of the info) earthquake as this story proves.

But better still is this: I watched an interview on CNN of a emergency rescue team member who is respected internationally as well as just in the US. He said, in fact, people can survive for up to 19 days if they have enough air.

I'm sure most people wouldn't intentionally go without food, water for 19 days voluntarily, but it can be done according to him. I wish I had caught his name.
Rescuers have pulled a pupil to safety after being trapped for 80 hours in the debris of a school following China’s massive earthquake, it was reported today.
