Funchu Tamang, a man over a century old, was pulled alive from the ruins of his house eight days after a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal.
Miraculously, Mr. Tamang suffered only minor injuries to his ankle and hand, and his condition is described as “stable.”
Elsewhere, three women were also rescued alive from the rubble, although it is not immediately clear how long they had spent trapped.
Meanwhile, tons of international aid are being held up by custom’s authorities in the area, a fact that is greatly hampering the relief effort.
The death toll has now raised to over 7,200, but the final figure is likely to be much higher.
