An Australian television crew helped save a toddler who was trapped under rubble for nearly three days after a 7.0 magnitude earthquake devastated Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

Rescuers pulled 16-month-old Winnie Tilin from the wreckage, amazed at how she survived days without food or water.

Volunteers could not find Winnie's family, and later discovered her parents died. Her uncle, who lost his own wife to the earthquake, took the child.

Save the Children staff, who worked in Winnie's rescue, say the child was dehydrated but expect her to recover.
