A building collapsed in Nairobi, Kenya, last week, leaving 23 people dead and 93 missing.
Rescuers have been working tirelessly since the moment they stepped onto the horrific scene. Just as they were giving up hope on May 3, however, the team came across a six-month-old baby in the rubble.
Miraculously, the child had no significant injuries and only needed treatment for dehydration, which she received immediately. Her name is Dealeryn Saisi Wasike, and her parents could not believe their eyes when they saw that their little one was alive and well after such an awful ordeal.
The baby not only survived the initial collapse, but she also managed to hold on for an entire week until rescue workers found her.
The discovery has given hope to the families of those who are still missing. Rescue efforts will continue until every inch of the area has been scoured for survivors.
Everyone who’s part of the rescue mission is optimistic that more people will be found alive.

When it comes to survival, all of us are fighters. Dealeryn Saisi Wasike won’t remember anything about this experience when she grows up, but what she will know is that she can tough it out through just about anything.
