    Survivors Pulled From Wreckage of Taiwan Earthquake

    Three more have been rescued from the rubble. Search crews found a man, woman and child today, pulling them to safety two days after their 17-story apartment complex collapsed in a magnitude-6.4 earthquake in Tainan City. The temblor killed at least 38, most of whom were inside the Weiguan Jinlong building, where scores of people are still believed to be trapped. Taiwanese officials, who’ve ordered a legal investigation into the construction of the apartment building, warn that the death toll is likely to climb over 100.
