Survivors of quake in Sichuan thank rescuers

According to China Daily, many grateful survivors of the earthquake in the Sichuan province have to thank their rescuers, whose names they do not even know, by holding banners in the steeets. In China, there are also many memorials and monuments in honour of Good Samaritans such as Dr. Norman Bethune and Dr. Dwarkanath Kotnis. Meanwhile, life-saving rescue operations are being continued in the affected areas although the critical three-day period was over, as it is still believed that some extraordinary human beings with unusually strong willpower to survive could actually persevere for six to eight days without any food or drink under adverse external environment.
