SHENZHEN, Dec. 23 (Xinhua) -- One man was pulled out of debris alive early Wednesday morning, more than 60 hours after a landslide hit an industrial park in the southern city of Shenzhen on Sunday.
The 19-year-old, named Tian Zeming, was rescued by a detachment of the armed police around 6:30 a.m. and rushed to the Guangming New District Central Hospital.
He is in stable condition and has been taken to the operating room to receive a surgical debridement, said Wang Guangming, president of the hospital.
One of Tian's ankles had been stuck in the debris and medical experts are doing their best to save his foot, Wang added.
Tian was among the previously reported 76 missing in the landslide.
Rescuers and armed police identified the exact location of Tian at 1 a.m. on Wednesday in a collapsed factory building, and found him at 3:30 a.m.
Tian told rescuers his name and said that there was another survivor near him.
Firefighters had to squeeze into the narrow room around Tian and remove the debris by hands, said Zhang Yabin, an armed police participating in the rescue.
Before he was pulled out, Tian had been given oxygen and received intravenous infusion, Zhang said.
However, the person beside Tian was pronounced dead by the doctors after he was retrieved, according to rescuers.
On Wednesday morning, the State Council, China's cabinet, set up an investigation team to look into the landslide.
Minister of Land and Resources Jiang Daming is director of the investigation team, which includes team members from Ministry of Public Security, Ministry of Supervision, Ministry of Environmental Protection, Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, State Administration of Work Safety, All-China Federation of Trade Unions, and the Guangdong Provincial Government and the Shenzhen Municipal Government.
