Earthquake in Japan Man Rescued

The Japanese Earthquake is still creating headlines around the world, but finally some good news. A Japanese man who was swept 15km out to see by the deadly tsunami was plucked to safety yesterday after being spotted clinging to a piece of wreckage. The 60 year old man was discovered floating on a piece of roof in waters off Fukushima Prefecture, two days after the disaster struck. The man is from the city of Minamisoma which has been virtually obliterated by the tsunami and was swept out along with his house after the massive tsunami struck. He is in good condition and was taken to hospital by helicopter.
