ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) A man in his forties was saved from the debris of a collapsed apartment building on Monday (February 8), more than 48 hours after a strong earthquake hit the south of Taiwan, and was immediately taken to hospital. His condition wasn't immediately known. Rescue workers accompanied the man was they were lowered to the ground by a crane. More than 100 people are still missing in the deeper levels of the debris, which authorities say are much harder to reach than the more easily accessible parts of the collapsed building the rescue workers have been focusing their efforts on so far. The official death toll had reached at least 37 by 0500GMT on Monday, but Tainan's Mayor William Lai was quoted on Taiwan media saying the number of victims was expected to exceed 100.
