It was hours after the authorities had called off the search for survivors in Haiti, but a British woman helped rescue a man 11 days after the devastating earthquake.
Volunteer Carmen Michalska, from Aberdeen, managed to crawl into the tomb-like space where 24-year-old Haitian Wismond Exantus has been trapped for more than a week.

He did not know if anyone would ever hear. He prayed, recited psalms, and slept.
