Rescue crews are celebrating this morning.
A ten-year-old Israeli girl has been found alive in the earthquake rubble in Turkey.
An Israeli rescue team found the girl, more than four days after the quake hit. She's said to be in ``reasonably good condition.''
Her twin brother's body was pulled from the debris a few hours earlier.

Meanwhile the death toll from the quake keeps growing.
The latest confirmed death count is ten-thousand-204, with tens of thousands of people still believed buried in the rubble.
Turkish authorities are starting to take action against the contractors whose shoddy buildings are being blamed for many of the earthquake deaths.
Friday police detained three contractors on negligence charges in one city in western Turkey.
Many of the collapsed buildings were multi-story apartment blocks thrown up quickly.
Their builders have been accused of using substandard materials to cut costs -- and political influence to avoid inspections.

The Drought of '99 has devastated crops, poultry, and livestock in many parts of the State. But help will soon be on the way.
Governor Gilmore convened a meeting of the State Drought Monitoring Task Force yesterday and they agreed the greatest need at this time is help in transporting hay and water to livestock.
So Gilmore authorized the Virginia National Guard to help with the transport.
He also directed the state agriculture department to immediately identify and provide donated hay and water to drought stricken farmers.
