Kenya: Woman Found Alive after 6 Days in Collapsed Building

Thursday, 05 May 2016 06:28 AM

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — A Kenyan official says a woman has been found alive after six days in a collapsed building and rescuers are working to free her.

Pius Masai, the head of the National Disaster Management Unit, said Thursday rescuers are creating room to release the woman who is speaking to medics waiting to treat her. He said the death toll from the disaster has risen to 33 and 80 people are missing.

A nearly six-month-old baby was rescued on Tuesday, raising hopes that more survivors would be found. The infant was found unharmed in a washbasin after the seven-story building collapsed.

With housing in high demand in Nairobi, some unscrupulous developers bypass regulations to cut costs and maximize profits.
