Haiti miracle: 17-year-old girl survives 15 days after being buried


French rescuers who found Darlene Etienne, 17, said it was a miracle that she had survived for more than two weeks trapped in the debris.

“I don’t know how she happened to resist that long. It’s a miracle,” said rescue worker JP Malaganne.

Etienne is being said to be one of the world’s longest survivors of an earthquake.

Rescuers said she was shocked and dehydrated but happy to be free.
