A Nepalese woman, 25, is free after being buried under a guest house for five days after the Nepalese earthquake, police and Interior Ministry officials confirmed Thursday.

A joint team of French, Norwegian and Israeli rescue workers from the IsraAID organization, led by Eran Magen, helped extricate her from the rubble.

Krishna Kumar Khadka became the second survivor recovered on Thursday, Interior Ministry spokesman Laxmi Dhakal said.

She was rescued in the evening from the Jana Sewa Guest House in the Gongabu bus park area, the same place where Pemba Lama was rescued earlier in the day, police officer Prajwal Maharjan said.

He said she was in a serious condition and that she was taken to hospital.

The Israeli field hospital that has been set up in Kathmandu has treated 184 patients, performed six surgeries and delivered one baby.
