A 15-year-old boy was found alive in Kathmandu under collapsed rubble of a seven-story building five days after the earthquake.

Pemba Lama said he survived by eating clarified butter and drinking water from wet clothing.

The 7.8-magnitutde earthquake shook Nepal on Saturday April 25, leaving much of the country in ruins and with an estimated 6,000 death toll.
