International rescue teams in Haiti have rescued a total of 121 people as of Wednesday, the United Nations said today according to AFP.
The survivors were found under the rubble of collapsed buildings in Haiti since the country was hit by a 7.0 magnitude earthquake on Jan.12.
Among the most recent survivors are Ena Zizi, a 69-year-old woman who was pulled out from the debris of a church seven days after the earthquake hit. Two women were also rescued the same day from a destroyed university and a woman indentified as Lozama Hotteline, 26 was rescued alive from a collapsed store.
We are at 121 people found, Elisabeth Byrs, a spokesman for the UN's Organization for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs told the news agency.
The number of rescued people increased from 90 on Tuesday to 121 on Wednesday, according to the United Nations.
The earthquake likely killed 200,000 people in Haiti, injured 250,000 and left 1.5 million homeless, the European Union Commission reported.
International teams are still rescuing people alive from the rubble on Wednesday. However many Haitians are still in urgent need for food, water and medical care.
