Osaka: Two survivors, including an elderly
woman, were rescued from the wreckage of a home in Japan`s
northeast on Sunday, nine days after a massive earthquake and
tsunami, authorities said.
"An 80-year-old woman and a 16-year-old boy were found
under debris," said a police spokesman in the devastated city
of Ishinomaki in Miyagi prefecture.

"Their temperatures were quite low but they were
conscious. Details of their condition are not immediately
known. They have been already rescued and sent to hospital."

Sumi Abe and her grandson Jin Abe were in the kitchen
when the quake struck on March 11, public broadcaster NHK
reported.

The house collapsed with them inside but the grandson was
able to reach food from the refrigerator, helping them to
survive, NHK quoted rescuers as saying. The boy was said to be
shivering and with no feeling in one leg.
Miyagi prefecture was worst hit by the quake and tsunami,
with a confirmed death toll of 4,882.
