Finding survivors was a thankless and perilous task. The rescue teams faced obstacles like combustible material and difficult access. Some people used dogs to help in their endeavors.
Only 23 persons were recovered from the rubble after the collapse, 15 of whom were rescuers who had jeopardized their own security. 27 hours after the collapse, the last survivor was extracted by rescuers.
Rescue dogs would grow significantly upset because they were finding so few live survivors and felt like they weren’t doing a good enough job.
To raise the spirits and morale of the dogs, handlers would hide among the debris and let the animals “discover” them.
