SAN FELICE SUL PANARO, Italy (AP) - Rescuers say they have pulled a woman alive from the rubble of her apartment building, 12 hours after a killer quake hit northern Italy.
Firefighters told Sky TG24 that the woman yelled out to rescuers as they were about to reach her Tuesday night in the rubble of her kitchen. She had gone into the building, which had been damaged by the region's May 20 quake, reportedly to retrieve some clothes, when Tuesday's 5.8 magnitude temblor struck, collapsing the apartment building of several stories.
In an unrelated development, officials changed Tuesday's death toll 16 - one lower than earlier - and said one person remains missing. The number of injured was raised to 350.
