Three Tibetan women were pulled out alive from rubble Monday, five days after a 7.1-magnitude quake hit northwest China, rescuers said.

At about 11:00 AM, Sichuan Mining Rescue Team rescued the 68-year-old Urgyan Tsomo and 4-year-old Tsering Belkyi, who had been buried for more than 123 hours. Their family had managed to send water and rice to the two buried under their collapsed house. Luckily, they had a bedboard overhead for protection.

Another saved was an unidentified Tibetan woman, who was rescued out of rubble 130 hours after the quake occurred.
