Emergency responders on Thursday rescued a teenage boy found alive after he spent five days trapped beneath rubble in Kathmandu. A USAID team worked for several hours to rescue the boy, and crowds erupted into cheers as he was finally carried away on a stretcher. The boy was not very deep into the debris, but was trapped between two collapsed floors, said team leader Andrew Olvera. The death toll from Saturday’s 7.8-magnitude earthquake has topped 5,500 and injured 11,440 more.
