While waiting for rescue, she knitted
L’AQUILA, ITALY. A 98-year-old woman, Maria D’Antuono, was found alive under the rubble 30 hours after she was buried alive as her walls crashed in around her during the earthquake.
“I tried to remain active while I was down there,” she told rescuers. “Mainly I crochet because I always have a hook in my pocket.”
When she was pulled from the rubble and saw all the TV cameras trained on her, she asked: “Hold on, let me at least brush my hair.”
