Amazing Video Shows IDF Forces Rescuing Quake Victim After 6 Hours – Alive Because Of Text Messaging

[VIDEO LINK BELOW] On Sunday forces from the IDF Search and Rescue unit of the Home Front Command rescued a 52 year old man alive from the rubble. The man was rescued in good condition, but was suffering from wounds in his limbs and from dehydration. The victim was able to communicate his location by sending SMS messages. Israeli forces were dispatched to the location and were finally able to hear his voice near the wreckage. The Search and Rescue forces were able to rescue him after six hours

Col. (res) Gil Shanav from the Search and Rescue unit of the Home Front Command reported to Army Radio: “We sent our forces to the area and established contact with the trapped civilian who was beneath two stories of rubble. We had to build a tunnel to get to his location and after six hours we were able to rescue him.”

Additionally, Army Radio reported that the man rescued was an income tax official who was trapped for four days under the rubble of the Tax Authority office in the capital of Port-au-Prince. He was transferred for treatment at the field hospital set up by the Israeli delegation.
