Woman rescued from rubble 24 hours after earthquake
The death toll from a powerful earthquake that hit Christchurch, New Zealand, rose to 75.
More than 300 people are still missing. Forty-eight were pulled out from collapsed buildings alive overnight.
The search has now been abandoned at one office block, but elsewhere a woman was rescued after more than 24 hours.
Christchurch Mayor Bob Parker said that although she needed some medical attention, she did not appear to have any major injuries.
