98-Year Old Woman Found Alive After 30 Hours in Rubble

Maria D'Antuono was found alive, and in good shape, more than 30 hours after her house collapsed above her in the little town of L'Aquila, Italy. Monday's quake left many homeless and dead. But Maria managed to stay alive.

When she was pulled from the rubble she was asked what she did to pass the time while waiting for rescue. This brave nonna said she spent the time with her crochet hook and wool!

Now that's my kind of grandma!!!

The Guardian ran a wonderful story on these happenings.
