Christchurch mayor Bob Parker said that he doesn't believe that there are survivors still trapped underneath the CTV building, which collapsed in the city center, Army Radio reported Thursday.

He added that the decision to stop rescue efforts in Christchurch, New Zealand, following the 6.3-magnitude earthquake that claimed the lives of at least 98 and has left 226 still missing, was only temporary.
