Two Survivors Pulled From Rubble Five Days After China Quake

There's been a dramatic rescue five days after an earthquake in Tibetan western China.

China Central Television reports rescuers pulled a 4-year-old girl and a Tibetan woman alive from the rubble of a collapsed mud hut where they were trapped under a bed.

Relatives kept the two alive by sending them food and water through gaps in the rubble with the help of bamboo poles. The report showed the white-haired woman waving her arms as she was lifted onto a stretcher and put in an ambulance.

The woman is in critical condition while the child is suffering from heart problems due to trauma.

Meanwhile, trucks carrying aid and equipment are rolling into the area.

The quake killed more than 1900 people.

    As we saw in Haiti, people being pulled from the rubble after more than a week, I thank God that miracles still happen.

    There have been more earthquakes these days in the last 10 years.What is going on here? People tell me were living in the end times and 99 % of the prophecies have already come to pass.
