Man is found alive 60 hours after landslide

A migrant worker was pulled out alive today after he was buried for more than 60 hours in a massive landslide that swept through part of a major manufacturing city in southern China. Rao Liangzhong of the Shenzhen Emergency Response Office said that the man, Tian Zeming, was rescued around dawn. "The survivor had a very feeble voice and pulse when he was found alive buried under debris, and now he's undergoing further checks," Dr. Wang Yiguo told a news conference in Shenzhen. More than 70 people are still missing from the landslide that happened Sunday when a mountain of construction waste material and mud collapsed and flowed into an industrial park in Shenzhen.

Coyote inside airport pays with its life

A coyote made its way into Myrtle Beach International Airport but was trapped and removed before it could come into contact with passengers or employees. Airport spokesman Kirk Lovell said an animal control officer cornered and trapped the coyote Tuesday morning near the only federal security checkpoint on the ground floor. Lovell said no flights were delayed or canceled, but the checkpoint was briefly closed. A police officer tried to trap the animal outside the building, but it likely entered through a baggage portal. The coyote was euthanized as a nuisance animal.

Forms for marriage licenses are revised

Kentucky Republican Gov. Matt Bevin has ordered the state to prepare new marriage licenses that do not include the names of county clerks in an attempt to protect the religious beliefs of Kim Davis and other local elected officials. In a news release Tuesday, Bevin said he has issued an executive order directing the Kentucky Department of Libraries and Archives to issue the revised marriage license forms to all county clerks. The order comes after Davis, the Rowan County clerk, spent five days in jail in September for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
