  • Description

    RESCUE WORKERS WERE STILL TOILING TODAY (TUESDAY) AMONG THE RUINS OF AN EARTHQUAKE-SHATTERED APARTMENT BUILDING IN MANILA, IN THE PHILIPPINES. RESCUERS SAID THERE WAS LITTLE HOPE THAT ANY OF THE 150 PEOPLE BELIEVED STILL ENTOMBED IN THE APARTMENT BUILDING WOULD BE FOUND ALIVE.

    THE FIVE-STOREY BUILDING COLLAPSED LIKE A PACK OF CARDS ON FRIDAY WHEN A VIOLENT EARTHQUAKE JOLTED MANILA AND NEARBY PROVINCES. MORE THAN 6,000 VOLUNTEER RESCUERS HAVE BEEN WORKING TO CLEAR THE DAMAGE, AND SOFAR SOME 180 BODIES HAVE BEEN RETRIEVED FROM THE RUINS, THE OFFICIAL DEATH TOLL HAD ALREADY RISEN TO 200 LAST NIGHT, WITH MANY MORE FEARED DEAD.

    UNIDENTIFIED SURVIVORS HAVE BEEN TAKEN STRAIGHT TO HOSPITAL, AND THEIR DETAILS ARE BEING CHALKED ON A BOARD AT THE RESCUE SITE.
