Grandmother & Granchild Rescued From Rubble In Japan

What a miracle in a country that desperately needs good news:

A grandmother and her teenage grandson were rescued Sunday in Japan, nine days after they became trapped in their home following the earthquake and tsunami, officials said. In the southern part of the Miyagi city of Ishinomaki, the 80-year-old woman and 16-year-old boy were rescued by medical workers, authorities said.

Police were searching for survivors in the vicinity. The boy managed to crawl through the rubble onto the roof, the Ishinomaki police department said. A relative had reported the two missing on March 13, police said. Police gave the specific location as Kadonowakimachi, in the southern part of Ishinomaki near the coast.
