Emergency workers

Belgian emergency workers ask for extra gear as they work together to free a Haitian woman who had been trapped in the rubble of her house for days on January 15 in Port au Prince, Haiti. A group of B-FAST (Belgian First Aid and Support Team) members worked most of the day to free the woman, who had her legs pinned under concrete; in the end, the emergency workers had to anesthetize her and amputate one leg to free her.Photo by Chris Hondros/Getty Images
