Firefighter found alive in rubble after China blast

TIANJIN, China (AP) — Some 32 hours after two huge explosions in a Chinese port city killed at least 50 people, rescuers have pulled a trapped firefighter out of rubble.

Local media say he’s being treated for injuries to his face, chest and feet.

Seventeen of those killed were firefighters, but authorities say others are still missing.

Wednesday night’s blasts in Tianjin originated at shipping containers owned by a company authorized to handle hazardous material and struck a mostly nonresidential warehouse district.
