A man in his 30s was saved from a crumbled building in Port-au-Prince, the capital city of Haiti, Tuesday, two weeks after a devastating earthquake hit the Caribbean nation.
Ricot Duprevil was discovered and pulled out alive by the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne Division's Delta Company during a rubble-clearing mission in the center of the city.
He was in stable condition at a medical facility where he was being treated for a broken leg.
It is not yet clear if he became trapped in the initial quake or during one of the many aftershocks since then.
"We don't know if he was there from the beginning or in one of the aftershocks he may have gone under," said, Andrew Pourak, a U.S. Army specialist.
"He got sent to the hospital, he's going to make it," Pourak said.
