Two survivors found in Japan quake rubble after 9 days

Japan - An 80-year-old woman and 16-year-old youth were found alive on Sunday under the rubble in the Japanese city of Ishimaki in northeast Japan, nine days after the region was devastated by a massive earthquake and tsunami, NHK public TV said.
NHK quoted police in Miyagi prefecture as saying the two had responded to a call from a police rescue team. They were weak but conscious.
On Saturday, Kyodo news agency and the military reported the "miracle rescue" of a young man pulled from the rubble of his home, only to find out that he had been in an evacuation centre beforehand and just returned to his home.
