65-year-old Italy earthquake survivor was saved by kitchen table

CAVEZZO, Italy (AFP) - The last survivor to be pulled alive from the rubble after a killer earthquake hit north-east Italy escaped death by sheltering under her kitchen table as the building collapsed around her. The woman, 65, spent 12 hours under rubble on Tuesday before firemen with sniffer dogs heard her cries for help and dug her out from under the ruins of the five-storey building in Cavezzo which had caved in when the quake hit. 'The woman was under a piece of furniture in the kitchen. The furniture saved her, it was a miracle,' one of the firemen told Ansa news agency. The woman was taken to hospital in critical condition.
