Rescuers Race To Save Lives After Chile Quake

February 28, 2010, 11:59 AM

Rescuers Race To Save Lives After Chile Quake
CONCEPCION, CHILE - Authorities in Chile say yesterday's earthquake has left about 300 dead. They expect that number will only continue to climb.

More than 100 died in Concepcion, a city of more than 200,000 near the epicenter. The city's streets are littered with rubble and inmates have escaped from a nearby prison.

Rescuers are trying to reach people trapped in a new, 15-story apartment building that toppled backward.

Police used water cannon and tear gas to scatter people who forced open the doors of a supermarket, hauling away everything from diapers to a kitchen stove.

Across the river in San Pedro, looters cleared out a shopping mall. A video store was set on fire, automatic teller machines were broken open, a bank was robbed and a supermarket emptied.

Ninety aftershocks of magnitude 5 or greater followed the initial quake, which measured 8.8. One aftershock was nearly as powerful as the earthquake that devastated Haiti in January.
