Alive

Rescue Workers Free Trapped U.N. Worker

Tarmo Joveer might want to buy a lottery ticket. The Estonian security officer was rescued from the rubble of a five-story United Nations building by the Fairfax County, Va., Urban Search and Rescue Team after a five-hour operation that included feeding Joveer water through a rubber pipe. Joveer then walked away, hugging people crowded around the wreckage. Joveer was taken to an Argentinean hospital to be treated for injuries; his report of the time he spent underneath debris was simply, "It was not good." Despite the good news of Joveer's rescue, the State Department has confirmed the first U.S. death in the quake: Victoria DeLong, a veteran diplomat and cultural affairs officer at the U.S. Embassy.
