From The Australian:
Emma Howard lay trapped for six-and-a-half hours inside the Pyne Gould building, one of the most badly damaged when the 6.3-magnitude quake struck the New Zealand at lunchtime on Tuesday.
She texted her fiance, fellow accountant Chris Greenslade, who raced to the building from his nearby workplace.
“I thought she was dead,” he said today before the couple's wedding ceremony in Christchurch.
Mr Greenslade dug among the ruins of the building, pulling out other people as he searched for his bride-to-be.
Eventually he was able to carry her from the destroyed building - an act captured in some of the first footage of rescue efforts after the quake.
