Haiti survivor films quake ordeal

Students shoot mobile phone video of being trapped under tonnes of debris.



    More than 200,000 people were killed in last month's massive earthquake in Haiti, most of them trapped beneath the ruins of collapsed buildings.

    But dozens managed to survive and were eventually pulled from under the rubble.

    One young student captured her ordeal on video using her mobile phone.

    Al Jazeera's Jonah Hull reports.
