Man rescued alive after 60-hrs of China landslide

23 December 2015, Nirapad News: A man buried in rubble for more than 60 hours after a landslide hit Shenzhen in China has been pulled out alive, state media says.

The landslide, which struck early on Sunday, engulfed more than 30 buildings in an industrial district.

At least one person is dead and more than 70 people are missing.

The landslide was caused by a huge man-made mound of earth and construction waste that became unstable and collapsed, after heavy rains.

Thousands of people have been involved in the rescue efforts.

The 19-year-old survivor was found at 03:30 local time on Wednesday (19:30 GMT Tuesday) under a collapsed building and is now receiving medical treatment, reported state news agency Xinhua.
