Rescue workers held little hope Saturday of finding more survivors from a devastating landslide in the Philippines, saying a farming village was swallowed whole by a wall of mud and boulders that killed up to 1,800 people.
Lt. Col. Raul Farnacio, the highest-ranking military officer at the scene of Friday's disaster, estimated nearly every man, woman and child in Guinsaugon had died.
Only 57 survivors have been found - none so far Saturday - out of a population of 1,857. At least 24 bodies have been pulled from the mud, and a child who originally survived died overnight from head injuries.
