A number of children and one adult have been rescued after a building collapsed due to heavy rains.

 

Ten people died and 121 were injured when the six-story residential building in the Huruma area of Nairobo fell down.

 

 

While rescue efforts were hampered due to flooded roads and traffic jams, footage of the National Youth Service and firefighters moving rubble in order to rescue a number of trapped children and one adult has emerged.

 

 

 

 

According to reports, this is the second building to collapse in a year, with blame being put on the government for failing to demolish buildings that were deemed unfit for habitation.
