'Miracle' rescue nearly 60 hours after Philippine landslide

February 10, 2024

The rescue of a child on Friday nearly 60 hours after a landslide hit a gold-mining village in the southern Philippines has been hailed as a "miracle" after searchers had given up hope of finding more survivors. The girl, who the Philippine Red Cross said was three years old, had been among scores of people missing after the rain-induced landslide hit the village. "It's a miracle," Macapili said, adding that searchers had believed those missing were probably dead. The landslide struck Tuesday night, destroying houses and engulfing three buses and a jeepney waiting to pick up workers from a gold mine. The area hit by the landslide had been declared a "no-build zone" after previous landslides in 2007 and 2008, Macapili told AFP.
