Ten bodies are pulled out of the rubble as rescue workers, using their bare hands, excavators and dogs, race against time.
Rescue workers have pulled 10 bodies out of piles of rock and mud and were still searching for 93 people after a massive landslide struck in southwestern China.
The mountain rock slip engulfed more than 40 homes and a hotel in the village of Xinmo in Maoxian county, Sichuan Province, around 6am local time on Saturday.
So far only three people – a couple and their one-month-old baby – have been rescued, and hope of finding survivors was fading.
A resident of the area, Han Jianying, said: “This is useless. Everyone’s going to be in pieces anyway.”
More than 2,500 rescuers – some digging with bare hands, some using detection devices and dogs – were looking for signs of life as industrial excavators removed rubble at the site.
