Woman pulled alive from rubble six days after collapse

A woman has been pulled alive from beneath the rubble of a collapsed building in Kenya, six days after it came down.

Rescue workers spent several hours carefully digging their way to the woman after she was spotted still breathing earlier today.

She was carried to an ambulance as passers-by and well-wishers cheered.

At least 36 people were killed when the residential building in Huruma, Nairobi, which had been deemed not suitable for human habitation, collapsed on Friday night following several days of heavy rain.

Around 80 people are still thought to be missing.
