Help the Earthquake Children to Recover

The miracle girl

Friday, May 16th, 2008

This is the story of Song Xinyi, a 3 years old girl rescued after 40 hours:

‘Two tigers, two tigers, running fast…’, the singing came from underneath the debris. Everyone was moved by the babyish and optimistic voice.

The child’s life was in danger. The already destroyed building may collapse again at any moment. Then, the little girl started to calm her rescuers, ‘Uncles, I am not scared. You don’t worry.’

Pieces of stones and bricks were removed one by one by the rescuers. Then they discovered the girl’s legs were stuck in the rubble. Her lower body was stained with blood. The child was grinding her teech to suppress severe pains she was clearly suffering.

The 3 year old girl was buried under a destroyed house in Beichuan. Her body was shielded by her parents. After 40 hours of ordeal, she was rescued. Her parents were not so lucky to survive.

When lying on the stretcher, the child could speak clearly. Her name is Song Xinyi, She was in the kingergarten. She likes drawing and watching TV…
