China Earthquake: Rescuers Save Three-Month-Old Baby, But Death Toll Rises To At Least 186 People

Via NYDailyNews:

More than 11.000 more were injured and nearly two dozen are missing following Saturday’s devastating quake.

The quake — measured by China’s earthquake administration at magnitude 7.0 and by the U.S. Geological Survey at 6.6 — struck shortly after 8 a.m. on Saturday.

Tens of thousands of people moved into tents or cars, unable to return home or too afraid to go back as aftershocks continued to jolt the region.

The quake killed at least 186 people, left 21 missing, and injured 11.393, the official Xinhua News Agency quoted the provincial emergency command center as saying.
