French rescue workers pulled a teenage girl from the rubble of a home on the campus of a destroyed college Wednesday in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, 15 days after the devastating quake.

Members of the team that rescued the girl said the 17-year-old had a broken leg and was dehydrated, but otherwise in good shape. The girl may have had some access to water from a bathroom in the collapsed building.

She was given oxygen as workers rushed her to a French field hospital for treatment.

Didier Le Bret, the French ambassador to Haiti, praised the team who were supposed to have given up on searching for any more survivors days ago.

"They are so stubborn, because they should not work anymore" Le Bret said. "Officially the rescuing phase is over, but they still feel like there are some lives to be saved again."
