MODEL 1
Ann Brown, a twenty-two-year-old cleaner, was alone in the Trafalgar
Square offices of the Central Bank at 6.04 pm on Tuesday, when the earthquake
struck. As the building started to collapse, Ms Brown tried to escape but was
trapped under falling debris.
Although rescue teams arrived quickly at the scene, they were unable to
reach her until the following morning. This was because the rubble could only
be removed manually. Air and water were, however, passed to her through gaps
in the building to keep her alive as rescuers feared that more of the building
would collapse on Ms Brown if any mechanical equipment was used.
Eventually, the rescue team reached her and she was pulled to safety.
The head of the rescue team commented: It is nothing short of a miracle
that Ms Brown survived under so much rubble for such a long period of time.
He added, She must have a guardian angel watching over her. The bank is to
be rebuilt within the next four months.
MODEL 2
I went to work on foot that evening. As usual I went up to the second
floor to get the cleaning stuff out of the cupboard. The building was empty and I
figured that I could finish cleaning before 9 pm.
I had only just begun when there was a terrible rumble, like thunder, and
the building literally started to collapse around me. I remember falling and I was
lying on cold concrete in total darkness.
I was trapped. I started to scream but realised it was useless. That turned
into the longest night in my life. It seemed like an eternity before I heard voices
above me. I shouted for help. A man shouted back, Where are you? Here,
here! I yelled at the top of my voice. Dont panic, well get you out of there,
he called. He told me to take the air water pipes that were shoved through the
rubble.
When a chunk of debris was moved and I saw daylight, I knew I would
be safe. As the rescuer climbed down and hauled me out, I felt great relief.
Although my leg was hurting terribly, I was happy to be safe and sound.
