New York Team Rescues Children in Haiti

MYFOX New York is reporting that a New York City based Police/Fire Department team pulled two children alive from the remains of a two-story building in Haiti on Tuesday.
The children appeared to be severely dehydrated but remarkably well otherwise. The rescuers hurried the 8-year-old boy and the 10-year-old girl to the only fully operating hospital in the area – an Israeli tent hospital – where they are said to be getting top care.

The same team from NYC has found 4 additional survivors in the earthquake rubble since they arrived over the weekend.

Makes you proud to be from this fine city!
