NYC Police Officers/ Firefighters save children from rubble amidst aftershocks

<em>NY1 In Haiti:</em> Second Quake Rattles Capital

 According to NY1 who stationed reporter Dean Meminger on the ground in Haiti  — the New York City Police and Fire Search and Rescue Task Force pulled a five-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl from a building yesterday as seen in the above photo.

The children were taken alert to an Israeli tent hospital, where they were reunited with their parents. Dr. Dario Gonzalez of the Search and Rescue Task Force said “Both in wonderful condition, a little dehydrated, a little hungry. They’re both doing really well with no injuries.”

The rescue was a bittersweet victory for the NYC team as rescue workers also pulled the bodies of three other children from the same building. The deceased are said to be siblings of the two rescued children.

The 80 New Yorker task force members are still conducting searches through the devastated areas.
