Bhuj's death-toll could cross 20,000, say doctors Sunday, January 28, 2001

The death toll in the worst-hit Bhuj town of quake-devastated Gujarat may touch 20,000, doctors aiding the rescue efforts there said on Sunday.

A top government hospital functionary told UNI that a team of doctors from the institution despatched to Bhuj reported on Saturday morning that an estimated 50,000 people are still trapped in the debris of the collapsed buildings.

''The final figure of casualties may touch 20,000. In a nutshell, our medical team there has described the condition of the town as completely devastated. No part of the town is left untouched,'' he said.

Meanwhile, major government hospitals in the capital have been put on an alert to receive and treat the injured victims of the Gujarat earthquake.

However, no survivor has been brought to New Delhi yet, hospital sources said.

The super-speciality All India Institute of Medical Sciences has made special arrangements to receive the injured and has reserved beds for them. The Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital's disaster ward is also ready to treat any patients brought in.

Both hospitals have also despatched their medical teams to Bhuj along with medicines and equipment. The AIIMS has sent two teams of 22 doctors along with medical and surgical equipment and is sending another lot of equipment and medicines today.

The RML Hospital has sent a medical team of eleven persons including orthopaedists, surgeons, physicians and paramedic staff besides first aid kits and medicines. Another team is also on stand-by.

The government hospitals in New Delhi are coordinating the relief efforts with the Red Cross Society of India.

10 students among 23 rescued in Ahmedabad Sunday, January 28, 2001

At least 23 people, including ten students buried under the debris of a collapsed school building were rescued alive on Sunday, three days after the killer earthquake rocked Gujarat, even as people's anger rose high over the "slow pace" of rescue operations.

Besides the 10 students, another 13 were rescued from two other sites in the worst affected Maninagar area in the suburb of the city.

The survivors included a woman, Mona Singhvi and a 10-year-old child, Vicky.

"After 40 hours of sustained operations we were able to take out 23 people alive from the debris -- including 10 of the 70 students feared trapped under the debris of the Swaminarayan Vidya Mandir," B H Patel, divisional officer of the Maninagar fire station, said.

Those rescued had suffered minor to major injuries and have been admitted to various hospitals, he said.

Meanwhile, resentment was palpable in the vicinity. "Relief operations are going at a very slow pace and no proper equipment is being used to clear the rubble," said Vishnubhai, whose cousin's body was extricated from the debris.

NCC cadets were helping the Army and firemen to clear the concrete heaps and in cutting through wrangled steel by using gas cutters.

Residents in the area complain of the rescue team being poorly equipped. The operation cannot move at a faster pace until cranes and bulldozers were deployed to remove the huge concrete slabs, Devendra Patel, who lost his 14-year-old son, said.

"We have ourselves managed a 40-tonne crane from a private contractor," said Jayendra Patel. who lost his three daughters along with Devendra's son.

The residents were shelling out Rs 3000 per day as diesel cost besides rent of the crane, Patel, who himself miraculously escaped while his daughters got trapped under the debris of their flats, said.
