Thank God for the rescue?

Thank God?
It's a classic story. The poor woman has been buried under the rubble of her collapsed house for five days and when she is finally dug out, alive, she cries out her thanks to God for saving her life. Wasn't it God who sent the earthquake? And wasn't it human beings who, at great risk to themselves, actually saved her? If she really does believe that God saved her, what about the thousands who suffered for days before they died? Did God not give a hoot about the others?
What a weird kind of faith that is. It's not very nice if you ask me.
