Pakistan Quake Death Toll Nears 40,000

BALAKOT, Pakistan - The death toll from Pakistan's earthquake rose sharply to nearly 40,000 Saturday, with the president warning the numbers could jump still higher as relief teams reach more villages in the endless folds of the Himalayan mountains. Homeless survivors searched desperately for blankets and tents to brace against plunging temperatures. The suddenly frigid weather in some hard-hit areas was an ominous sign that winter was fast approaching with thousands of villagers still cut off from any aid whatsoever a week after the magnitude 7.6 quake hit the region.

5-Year-Old Rescued From Rubble

Pakistan Russian rescuers Wednesday freed an almost unscathed 5-year-old girl who had been entombed for five days in a collapsed stairwell. But as hope faded of finding many more survivors of last week's earthquake, relief workers turned to aiding the estimated 4 million left hurt or homeless amid the rubble.

A rush of international assistance, more cooperative weather and better coordination among national and foreign relief teams allowed authorities to slowly move food, water and temporary shelter to victims in remote mountain villages.

Still, untold thousands remained stranded beyond piles of rock and debris blocking roads, out of the reach of aid convoys and too numerous to be helped by the few helicopters available.
