One child, a girl, has just been rescued alive from the rubble of the building housing Ohen Nursery and Primary School, Ita Faji, Lagos Island, which collapsed just before 10am on Wednesday.

SaharaReporters understands that this is not the first child to be rescued from the rubble all day. However, this is the first in the last hour.

"It's a girl!" a bystander could be head saying.

As the young men who lifted her out were coursing through the crowd, another bystander was heard screaming "there's nothing wrong with her".

Good reason prevailed, though: the men continued moving past the crowd, apparently to take her to the hospital for medical attention.
