Local rescue teams are working their magic and saving lives in Haiti.

The Fairfax County Urban Search and Rescue team pulled a Danish United Nations officer from what once was the UN building in Haiti's capital on Sunday.

The victim was trapped since last week's earthquake. The 7.0 magnitude quake hit Haiti on Tuesday. The victim remarkably was OK.

Also, members of the same team worked 30 hours to free a 23-year-old woman from under a collapsed university building.

Our local search teams have pulled more than a dozen from the rubble since they arrived in Port-Au-Prince.
