given that there'll almost certainly still be some people buried under rubble right now praying to be found.
10 days seems far to short...
I mean they where still finding people wernt they, So why stop?
Its really grim.
What have i given them money for? When they haven't found anyone alive for a week, then they can stop.

basically, in an earthquake a few years ago, some dude was found just about alive after 27 DAYS :/
I genuinely cannot imagine the mental and physical experience of being alive under rubble desperately hoping for that long... jesus

we don't really know the ins and outs of the operation - redirecting those resources towards making sure people don't starve to death or die of disease could save many more lives.
It's just horrible thinking of the people RIGHT NOW buried alive.
people even can get found even when they're using heavy machinery to move big loads of concrete.
