Woman rescued six days after Kenya building collapse
NAIROBI—A woman was pulled alive on Thursday from the rubble of a building that collapsed when heavy rains hit Kenya’s capital Nairobi six days ago, an AFP reporter on the scene said.
The woman was pulled out hours after being located on Thursday morning by rescuers who gave her oxygen while they continued efforts to extract her from the ruins of the sixstorey building. Pius Masai of Kenya’s National Disaster Operation Centre said the woman was conscious and talking when she was found and complained of debris falling on her during the days-long rescue operation.
She was put in an ambulance, and Masai said she would be taken to hospital and assessed for injuries. On Monday a seven-month-old baby girl was found alive more than 80 hours
