"My sister is very weak and her husband is suffering from cerebral hemorrhage. We are going to Lhasa on behalf of our whole family," Yuan told a Xinhua reporter on Saturday at the Jiangbei International Airport in Chongqing Municipality where they will board a plane to Lhasa Sunday morning.

Nearly 36 hours after the landslide, rescuers retrieved the body of a miner. Some 3,500 rescuers are still searching for the remaining 82 buried in the debris although their chance of survival is slim.

"He yuan is the only son of my sister," said Yuan. "How can she survive without him?"

Once a naughty boy who had immersed himself in the Internet cafe playing online games, He Yuan seems to has "grown up overnight" since his father fell ill, Yuan said. "He has worked hard and saved every penny for treating his sick father and hoping to improve the livelihood of his family."

In the eyes of Yuan Song and He Guoxiang, Zhao Malin is a good man, who is polite and friendly to others. Zhao's wife is five months pregnant.

"How could this be that we lose two loved ones at one time?" Yuan cried.

"Anyway, we should meet them," he said.
