Rescuers in China pulled a 4-year-old girl and a Tibetan woman alive from the rubble of a collapsed mud hut where they were trapped under a bed.

Relatives kept the two alive by sending them food and water through gaps in the rubble with the help of bamboo poles.

The woman is in critical condition while the child is suffering from heart problems due to trauma.

The quake killed more than 1900 people.
