Teams from Israel continue to help earthquake-devastated Nepal, with Israeli soldiers and civilians alike pitching in. The Times of Israel’s Tamar Pileggi reports that an Israeli-led team has just rescued a Nepalese woman who was trapped under rubble for five days:
Workers from the Israeli group IsraAID, along with local soldiers and a team of experts from France and Norway, worked into the night to pull Krishna Devi Khadka to safety.
Khadka had been stuck underneath a collapsed hotel alongside three bodies and could only breathe due to an air pocket that formed alongside her…
Nepalese soldiers and the huge team of experts who had worked on the rescue cheered and clapped as Khadka — a rare survivor — was carried away by stretcher.
As the ambulance sped away, the team returned to the building as signs of a potential second survivor were felt, Zahavi said
“She was injured but she was conscious and talking,” a Nepal Army major told an AFP reporter at the scene. “She has been sent to a military hospital.”
“It is as though she had been born again,” he said.
