Chile earthquake aftermath, Feb. 28

Rescue workers looks for victims into a wrecked building in Concepcion, Chile on February 28, 2010, a day after a huge 8.8-magnitude earthquake rocked the country early morning, killing at least 708 people. The South American nation has been hit by numerous aftershocks, some reaching over 6 points on the Richter scale, as well as heavy damages in coastal towns resulting from subsequent tsunamis.
