LONDON— -- A 6-month-old baby girl has been rescued from the rubble of a collapsed building in Nairobi, Kenya, after surviving by herself for nearly 80 hours.

“She appeared dehydrated,” the Kenya Red Cross said in a statement, adding she had “no visible physical injuries” and had been taken for treatment at the Kenyatta National Hospital.

Her father, Ralson Saisi Wasike, positively identified the baby as his daughter after being reunited through the Red Cross Tracing Services.

At least 21 people died after a residential building collapsed during heavy rains Friday, while 135 have been injured and 117 have been reported missing, according to the Kenya Red Cross.

The owners of the building, which had been reportedly slated for demolition, have been charged with manslaughter, according to the BBC.
