Some 60 hours after a massive landslide buried an industrial complex in southern China... signs of life. Rescuers pulled a 19 year old male from under the rubble and rushed him to a hospital. His legs were crushed, but media say he's in stable condition. Sunday's disaster happened when a giant deluge of mud and construction waste from an over flowing dump site covered 33 buildings. Dozens of excavators, now ontop of the massive area, dig furiously in the hopes of finding additional survivors. More than 70 people are still missing. This man, who runs a factory near the landslide site said his business is losing money and his daily life has been affected. There is no guarantee for our basic life, he said. Workers have to eat and there is no power supply now. The official news agency said the dump was being used 10 months after it was supposed to have stopped taking waste.
