Young children pulled from rubble of collapsed Mexico City school

The person could be the missing school staff.

They had been unable to rescue a 12-year-old girl who communicated with a rescuer on Wednesday and whose fate has captured the attention of the worldwide media.

"All of the children are, unfortunately, dead or safe at home", said Angel Enrique Sarmiento, the undersecretary of the navy, according to a report by the Los Angeles Times.

In Mexico City alone, more than 1,900 people have been treated in health facilities after the quake and a lot of them have been discharged, according to Pena Nieto.

After widespread media and social media coverage of the Frida Sofia search, people expressed anger & frustration over the news that she didn't exist.

It's not yet known how many people Frida has been able to rescue this time around, but we know she's trying her best.

She had even been named, as "Frida Sofia", although some elements differed, such as her age, which ranged from 6 to 12, and no one could locate her parents.

The Daily Beast reported that a rumor spread through the popular messaging app

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto declared three days of mourning for victims of the quake, and schools in the capital and surrounding areas will remain closed until Monday. The outlet wrote, "Seconds after repeating the rumor, Peña Nieto walked back the comment, telling reporters traveling with him, 'It could have been one natural disaster".

As the Mexican saying goes, it's pouring over wet ground. "Pay attention to information from authorities and official accounts".

Efforts are still underway to rescue people trapped under debris.

Mexican authorities confirmed Thursday that so far at least 225 people have died. In the north of the city, a man who had been trapped for 26 hours, and a 90-year-old woman were pulled alive from the rubble. The Mexico Navy tweeted last week a collage of Frida decked in her uniform and ready to be deployed. Though there were fewer success stories, survivors are still being found beneath the rubble.
