Beijing : Chinese relief workers on Wednesday saved a 50-year-old woman from the rubble, 67 hours after a powerful 6.5-magnitude earthquake destroyed her home in China’s Yunnan Province even as the death toll climbed to nearly 600 as more bodies were pulled out from the debris, reports PTI.

Liao Tengcui suffered from serious injuries on the waist and head and could not move her left leg when rescuers extracted her from a pile of rubble in Yinping Village of Longtongshan Township in Yunnan province, said Wang Lei, a member of China International Search and Rescue Team. But she was still conscious at the time of rescue, he said.
