A Fish Story: Goldfish survive 134 days without feeding

By Shane Graber - Posted Jul 28, 2011 06:00 AM
In February 2011, a magnitude 6.3 earthquake struck Christchurch, New Zealand, killing 181 people and causing widespread damage. An office worker was recently allowed back into the office, which had been sealed off since the earthquake. She discovered two goldfish still alive after 134 days without any power, maintenance, or feeding!

According to All Headline News:

When office worker Vicky Thorney was permitted to go back into the office to collect her belongings, she discovered the goldfish when rescue workers shouted, "Hey, there are fish here, and they're alive."

Small graces!
Thanks for the lead, Jeff!
