Family Says Haitian Survived 4 Weeks in Rubble

Doctors have reportedly told CNN that a man discovered under earthquake rubble in Haiti's capital may have been trapped in his position since the quake struck, almost four weeks earlier.

The 28-year-old man, identified by CNN as Evan Muncie, was found under the remains of a market where he sold rice, according to family members speaking to University of Miami field hospital staff in Haiti.

Doctors say it is infeasible that the man survived that long without any water, but Muncie was reportedly disoriented after being pulled from the rubble and could not account for how he had survived for so long.

"Initially, I'm sure he had his senses with him, so maybe he was able to find some kind of resources," CNN quoted one of the Miami doctors as saying.
