A table saved me! Synagogue’s collapsed building survivor tells his story

One of the survivors of the
Friday’s building collapse of the Synagogues Church of All Nations,  a
South African named Khathuatshelo Ramovha was in
the rubbles for 13 hours before he got rescued.
Khathuatshelo who spoke to BBC
says he would have been dead but was saved by a table which upturned on him.
Read his story below:

Immediately when I want to start to
eat, I just felt like something like a blast on the wall. I can’t explain what
it is. It made a small sound; something like a wired bomb, so quick and the
building was coming down. So I lost my consciousness. After probably 30 minutes
or about an hour I woke up. 
When I woke up, I saw rubbles, so dark, no oxygen,
nothing.  People were screaming, people were praying, people were crying;
my leg, my head. I was not feeling any pain. I was under the table for hours
which my food was on top before the incident. I was under that table. Surely it
is that table that saved me because when the rubble came down, it touched that
table and I was under it. Probably if it touches me first, it will crush me.

how he was rescued, he says

I heard a very loud sound that broke
the rubbles. They were able to get inside. When they take it out they scream;
are there people there. We said yes we are here. You alive? Yes we are alive.
They told us to crawl through the hole they made. And we crawled. The first
lady crawled, 2nd, 3rd, I was the first male. All the first three persons were
female and then they took me out.
