A 98-year-old grandmother was found alive by rescue workers this morning after Italy's deadliest earthquake in three decades buried her for 30 hours under the rubble of her home.
"I worked, I knitted," said Maria D'Antuono, from the village of Tempera, close to the city of L'Aquila. Her comments were previously reported by television news program "Studio Aperto," broadcast on Mediaset SpA's Italian 1 channel.
Yesterday's earthquake rattled the province of L'Aquila, about 56 miles northeast of Rome, and left at least 207 people dead. Fifteen are still missing. One thousand people were injured, 100 seriously.
Aftershocks continued to rattle the quake zone, including one of magnitude 4.8 that shook the ground as far away as the capital.
