Prayers Are Answered as 2 year old Haitian Boy, trapped under rubble for 3 days, is brought out to safety (and smiles when he sees his mother).

The following article was taken from MailOnline World News
For the international rescue teams operating in the heart of the broken Haiti capital Port-au-Prince it was a moment of relief and achievement as they worked, often in wreckage containing bodies, in a race against time to find those still alive.

But then came the moment they had prayed for but feared they would never see as specialist Belgian and Spanish rescue workers, burrowing deep into the rubble, head torches picking out their route, edged their way to the young boy.

A human chain of rescue workers passed Redjeson forward, his head scarred by dried blood and face pitted with flesh wounds.

He looked bewildered until the moment his face saw his mother. Then, his eyes lit up and face creased with a smile as she reached forward to cuddle him.
