I thought this was pretty fascinating, it really makes you wonder. Mainly the part about a man in white clothing would occasionally bring him water. They say he could've been hallucinating, I on the other hand beg to differ.


Man 'buried under rubble for four weeks' found alive in HaitiSophie Tedmanson

The 28-year-old, identified as Evans Muncie, was found under the remains of the Croix Bossal market where he sold rice. He had not been seen since the 7.0 magnitude earthquake levelled the city on January 12, killing over 200,000 people.

Mr Muncie was discovered by people who had been digging at the marketplace. He was taken to an American field hospital in Port-au-Prince where he was treated for severe dehydration and malnutrition.

Doctors said Mr Muncie was very disorientated and at times thought he was still under the rubble while he was being treated at the tent hospital.

His mother said: "I thought he was dead, but God kept him from dying."

Dr Mike Connelly told CNN, the American news network: "He was emaciated. He hadn't had anything in quite some time. He had open wounds that were festering on both of his feet."

According to CNN, Mr Muncie told doctors that somebody in a white coat had occasionally brought him water, however it is not known whether he had been hallucinating.

He also said he could hear bulldozers around him working to demolish damaged buildings while he lay underneath the rubble near by.

Dr Connelly said Mr Muncie must have had access to water to have survived the entire four weeks trapped under a building.

"Initially, I'm sure he had his senses with him, so maybe he was able to find some kind of resources," Dr Connelly told CNN.

The US network showed photographs of Mr Muncie being treated by doctors.

Despite the Haitian Government calling for an end to search and rescue operations on January 23, survivors continued to be pulled from the rubble in the following days.

On January 27, 16-year-old Daline Etienne was rescued from beneath the debris of her house, 15 days after the earthquake had forced the building to collapse on top of her.

The rescue of the teenager, who appeared in relatively good health, was deemed a miracle.

I don't believe he was hallucinating, I believe that someone or something was bringing him water during that 4 Week period. Your body can't go without water for that long, not even for a week it's suppose to.

I doubt a guy was just bringing him water, and walking away, not letting anyone know he was there.  I do believe he may have found some resevoir of water somewhere, and was using it to keep him alive.  Stranger things have happened...

Anybody ever hear of divine intervention. Someone in a "white coat" would bring him water. Anybody ever hear of the Bible?

Sometimes it's okay to break the 'yellow snow' rule. But if anyone asks, just say a lab technician looking dude brought you beverages.

That is just amazing. Obviously, that man had faith in something to survive. Just incredible.

This calls for an obligatory Clayton Bigsby reference.
