Looking Dazed, the Teen Is Stretchered Away From the Rubble

Amazingly, five days after the devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake that hit Nepal, survivors are still being pulled from the rubble.  15 year-old Pema Lama was pulled from the wreckage of a guesthouse and placed on a stretcher with a brace on his neck and a IV-drip in his arm.

The death toll from the earthquake has climbed above 6,200, but authorities warn that it may still top 15,000 as more bodies are found.  Nearly 14,000 people were injured, while 100 died in Indian and China.
