More Survivors Found in Japan

Miraculously, even now some survivors continue to be found and pulled from the wreckage:

Two survivors of the Japan earthquake have been pulled alive from the rubble, four days after the 9.0 magnitude tremor.

A 70-year-old woman was found alive in her house in the town of Otsuchi in Iwate prefecture, public broadcaster NHK reported. She was suffering from hypothermia but was not in a life-threatening condition, it said, adding that she had been hospitalised.

A man, whose age was not given, was rescued in the town of Ishimaki in Miyagi prefecture, the network said.

Miyagi was particularly badly hit by the quake and the subsequent tsunami that swept away whole towns and villages. Emergency personnel were reported to have found 2,000 bodies in the prefecture on Monday.
