Nairobi: The Kenyan Red Cross Society on Tuesday announced that it rescued a baby from the rubble of a building 80 hours after it collapsed.

The six-storey building, which was marked for demolition since 2014, came crumbling down in the residential estate of Huruma in northeast Nairobi on Friday and killed 23 people.

Rescue workers working against the odds found little Dealeryn Saisi Wasike wrapped in a blanket in a bucket.

The Kenya Red Cross Society announced the baby’s discovery via Twitter and later described her as dehydrated but “with no visible physical injuries”.

Dealeryn’s father was able to identify the child after she was brought to the Kenyatta National Hospital. Sadly, her mother has not yet been found.

Nearly 100 households were wiped out in the tragedy with 136 residents rescued and 100 still missing.
