Finally, some good news came out of Nepal on Thursday. Pema Lama, a 15 year old boy from Kathmandu, was found alive in the ruins of the city's Hilton Hotel - 5 days after the devastating earthquake. A Nepalese search team working with a group of rescuers from USAID pulled the teenager out of the rubble in the morning, and rushed him for treatment in the Israeli Army field hospital. The "miracle boy" told UK's Channel 5 News that he was just about to eat when everything started to shake. "I was very scared the first two days and then I didn't know if I was living or dying", he recalled, "it was very dark and I could hardly move". The Israeli doctors said he was in an unbelievable, amazing condition. And though he was very hungry and dehydrated, he came out of the rubble with no broken bones and no serious cuts or injuries.
