A team of rescuers in pulled a man alive from the rubble on Saturday, 11 days after the devastating quake struck Port-au-Prince.

Wismond Exantus, a shop clerk, was trapped under rubble for nearly two weeks. His brother, Jean Elit Jean, never gave up hope for him, and guided rescuers to the site.

Exantus was able to find a few things to eat and drink in the rubble. He said he passed the time by sleeping, praying and reciting verses from Psalms.

"I was hungry," Exantus told The Associated Press from his hospital bed soon after the rescue. "But every night I thought about the revelation that I would survive."

"I would eat anything I found," he added. "After the quake I didn't know when it was day and when it was night."

Exantus said he owes everything to God, and is dedicating his life to Him.

"It was God who was tucking me away in his arms. It gave me strength," he said.
