Nepal eartquake: Rescuers save 101 year old man

Nepal - Four survivors, including a 101-year-old man, have been saved from the rubble in Nepal a week after a deadly earthquake in the country.

Funchu Tamang, 101, was rescued on Saturday, with only a few injuries. Authorities in the area also managed to save three women. 

According to the local media, one of the women had been stuck after a landslide. A collapsed house trapped the two remaining women.

Last week, a 15-year-old boy was pulled alive from under a house. The BBC showed remarkable footage of the teen being rescued.

South African aid organisation Gift of the Givers joined about several rescuers from 20 different countries to assist with helping the injured and cleaning up affected areas. It said last week that four South Africans were in Nepal when the earthquake struck.

Unfortunately, about seven thousand people (and rising) have died from the earthquake.
