18 year old nepalOn day six of Nepal’s tragedy, life triumphed as rescuers pulled an 18-year-old man from the rubble of a multistory residential building in one of Kathmandu’s hard-hit neighborhoods.

A large crowd erupted in cheers as Pemba Tamang was carried out on a stretcher. He was wearing a New York shirt and blue neck brace, was blanketed by dust and had the look of a deer in the headlights.

His rescuer, Inspector Lakshman Basnet of the Nepalese Armed Police Force, said Tamang was responsive and showed no apparent signs of serious injury.

He was given an IV drip and rushed from the Gongapur area to a temporary emergency hospital run by an Israeli aid team.

The Nepalese rescuers had been working for five hours to locate Tamang after they heard his voice buried under the debris.
