KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) — Rescuers have found three survivors in a mountainous village in Nepal, several days since the earthquake, an official said Sunday.

Two men and a woman had been pulled from the rubble near Syauli village earlier this week, government administrator Surya Prasad Upadhaya said Sunday.

It was not immediately clear which day they were found.

An initial Associated Press report on the survivors misinterpreted the statement about the time of the rescue.

They have been taken to a nearby military hospital for treatment, Upadhaya said.

The district is the worst hit by the magnitude-7.8 earthquake with the highest number of casualties.

It is located about 60 kilometers (35 miles) west of the capital, Kathmandu.
