IDF Footage of Rescue of Haitian Girl from Collapsed Building, 19 January 2010

IDF search and rescue forces continued their search for survivors of the earthquake in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, last night. During the searches, teams from Nicaragua, Russia, and Venezuela were able to locate two girls who had been trapped in a collapsed building for more than five days.

The girls were evacuated to the Israeli Field Hospital, where they were treated. The first girl to be evacuated had serious injuries, and CNN Reporter Chris Lawrence took her in his truck to the hospital where she recieved life saving treatment. The second girl was in much better condition, with only minor injuries. Both are now in stable-good condition.
