A 101-year-old man has been pulled alive from the rubble of his house in Nepal seven days after it collapsed in a deadly earthquake, police say.
Funchu Tamang was rescued on Saturday with only minor injuries and airlifted to a district hospital, local police officer Arun Kumar Singh said.
“He was brought to the district hospital in a helicopter. His condition is stable,” Mr Singh said.
“He has injuries on his left ankle and hand. His family is with him.”
The man was found in Nuwakot district about 80 kilometres north west of Kathmandu.
Police also rescued three women from under rubble on Sunday in Sindupalchowk, one of the districts worst hit by the quake, although it was not immediately known how long they had been trapped.
One had been buried by a landslide while the other two were under the rubble of a collapsed house.
