Russian, Singaporean Rescuers Continue Working in China's Earthquake Zone

Russian and Singaporean rescue teams on Sunday continued their work in the quake-stricken southwestern Sichuan Province.

According to a Chinese who accompanied the Russian rescuers, the Russian rescue team was still in Dujiangyan, a city southeast of the epicenter of the May 12 7.8-magnitude earthquake Wenchun County.

A 61-year-old woman was saved alive Saturday evening by Russian rescuers after being buried for up to 127 hours in the rubble.

The Russian rescuers now were trying to recover the body of a man, who was confirmed dead, from the same building.

Another group of the Russian rescue team was in search for life evidence in other places of Dujiangyan city.

Meanwhile, a 55-member rescue team from Singapore was working at Hongbai town, one of the worst-hit areas in Shifang City, Sichuan Province.

The Singaporean rescuers had recovered two bodies of the quake victims on Saturday evening.

According to the Chinese staff working with the Russian and Singaporean teams, the foreign rescuers were very careful when moving the bodies of the victims. They paid high respects to the victims, a comfort to the families of the victims.

More than 200 foreign rescuers from Japan, Russia, the ROK and Singapore are in Sichuan to help with rescue and relief.
