AMATRICE, Italy (AP) – An 8-year-old girl has been pulled alive from the rubble in Pescara del Tronto, one of the three towns most severely demolished by the earthquake in central Italy.

After nightfall Wednesday, two women ran up the street yelling “She’s alive!”

Chief firefighter Danilo Dionesei confirmed the girl was pulled out alive and was taken to a nearby hospital.

He didn’t immediately give any further details about her condition.
