Mr Wu Ze Bing and his wife survived the recent Sichuan earthquake of 12/05/2008, which measured 8.0 on the Richter scale. They are both road construction workers and were up in the mountains when the earthquake struck. They ran back down to their home only to find it destroyed and their nine year old daughter crushed. Their other two sons who are 19 and three years of age were in Dujiangyan, another badly affected city. They have no idea whether they are alive and his wife has gone to the city in search of them. He stands in front of what used to be his home. As the rescue effort goes on the death toll continues to rise, with five million people left homeless in Sichuan.
