A 6-month-old baby was found in the rubble of a building four days after it collapsed in the Kenyan capital Nairobi, rescue workers said Tuesday.
"The child had been buried for about 80 hours, was found in a bucket wrapped in a blanket," said Anthony Mwangi from Kenya Red Cross.
"She appeared dehydrated and had no visible physical injuries," he said.
Dealeryn Saisi Wasike was believed to have been wrapped in the blanket by her mother, who was killed.
Dealeryn was reunited with her father, according to the Red Cross.
The six-storey building collapsed in Nairobi's Huruma neighbourhood on April 29, killing 23 people. Nearly 140 people were rescued.
"It is a miracle the child managed to survive for four days under the rubble," Mwangi said.
Interior Minister Joseph Nkaissery has said the building was improperly approved for construction and the owner would be arrested.
