(The Monitor, 01/25/2010) “Quake Survivor Lived On Beer For 11 Days”

A shop worker buried in the Haiti quake has been pulled alive from the rubble after 11 days – and told how he survived on beer and cookies.

Dozens of onlookers cheered as Wismond Exantus emerged smiling from a deep tuned drilled by rescuers. Mr. Exantus had initially survived by diving under a desk when the rubble started to fall round him as the quake struck. The 24-year-old found himself trapped in a tiny space but discovered a few select groceries within arms’ reach beer, biscuits and cola. Speaking from his hospital bed he said: I was hungry. But every night I thought about the revelation that I would survive. “ I would eat any thing I found. After the quake I didn’t know when it was day and when it was night. “It was God Who was tucking me away in his arms. It gave me strength.”
