A second burst of joy for Nepal as a woman was pulled from the rubble of a Kathmandu hotel that collapsed on Saturday. "She was injured but she was conscious and talking," a Nepal army major tells AFP. "It is as though she had been born again." The woman, identified as Krishna Devi Khadka, is said to be a kitchen worker, either in her 20s or 30s, and was taken to a military hospital. She emerged from the rubble to cheers from rescue crews, in an area the AP reports is close to the city's main bus terminal—and, AFP adds, just blocks from the rescue of a teenager earlier today who sang to his rescuers.
