Japan: Survivor found after eight days

Posted:

TOKYO (WKOW)--Search teams have pulled a young man from a crushed house eight days after an earthquake and tsunami wrecked northeast Japan.

Officials said the young man was rescued Saturday from the rubble in Kesennuma, a city in one of the most devastated areas.

One official says the man was transferred to a nearby hospital, but he is too weak to talk.

Kyodo, the Japanese news agency, says the man was in his 20s.
