Boy found alive under Haiti ruin

Three days after the earthquake, a little boy is dug out of the rubble alive.

    Three days after the earthquake hit Haiti, residents in a Port-au-Prince neighbourhood heard the sound of a child crying from beneath the rubble.

    They managed to dig the boy, called Nixon, out of the ruins.

    For Haitians still searching for their loved ones, the story of Nixon offers a glimpse of hope and some call it a "miracle". 

    Al Jazeera's Mike Kirsch reports from Port-au-Prince.
