“Exactly two weeks after Haiti’s earthquake, US troops pulled another man from a collapsed building in Port-au-Prince — but it was unclear whether he was trapped in the original quake or an aftershock. Rico Dibrivell, 35, was pulled from the rubble of a building on Rue de Miracle in Port-au-Prince by soldiers of the 82nd Airborne Division. The site had been repeatedly looted but he claimed he had been trapped since the earthquake. His family say he has been missing for the full fortnight. Covered in dust and wearing only his underpants Mr Dibrivell was severely dehydrated and suffering from the broken leg but had no life-threatening injuries. ‘He got sent to the hospital. He’s going to make it,’ Specialist Andrew Pourak, one of the rescuers, said. About 134 people have been pulled alive from collapsed buildings, the most recent before last night being a 25-year-old man on Saturday. If yesterday’s survivor had indeed been trapped for a fortnight his survival would be little short of miraculous and lift the spirits of an increasing hungry and desperate city.”
