Friends rescue 84-year old Haiti woman after 10 days

Friends dug 84-year-old Marie Carida Roman out of the rubble of her Port-au-Prince home Friday, 10 days after she was buried by Haiti's devastating earthquake, her doctors said at her hospital bedside.

"They pulled her out early this morning. She was barely responding, she had wounds all over her body, and maggots. It's very unusual," Dr. Vladimir Larouche, a Haitian-American doctor from New York working at the General Hospital, told Reuters.

"I treated her and made her stable," he added.
