The Hong Kong search and rescue team on May 19 moved to work among collapsed staff quarter buildings at Hanwang in Mianzhu, Sichuan. During that time, the rescue team of the Liberation Army found a female survivor in the rubble and the HKSAR team helped move her to an ambulance.
"We were very excited to be able to find a survivor eight days after the disastrous earthquake," Senior Divisional Officer of the Fire Services Department and leader of the HK search and rescue team, Tam Tai-keung said.
"We will grasp every opportunity and do our best to find remaining survivors. The earthquake in Sichuan has given us the opportunity to feel that Hong Kong is a part of China and that we are just like family who will help each other when needed," he said.
