KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) — Rescuers have pulled a teenage boy alive from the rubble of a Kathmandu building that collapsed around him five days ago during Nepal's massive earthquake.

Waiting crowds roared and cheered as the boy, who has not been identified, was carried out in a stretcher. His face was covered in dust, and medics had put an IV drip into his arm. A blue brace had been placed around his neck. He appeared stunned, and his eyes blinked in the sunlight.

A USAID team had been working at the scene overnight to try to free the boy.

Andrew Olvera, head of a USAID disaster response team, said before the rescue that the boy was not very deep, but he was trapped between two collapsed floors of the building.
