Moving footage of doggo rescued from rubble in Mexico

As Mexico City residents and emergency responders continue to search for trapped survivors following Tuesday's devastating natural disaster, one story in particular has captured the world's attention - that of a supposed 12-year-old girl who rescuers spotted wiggling her fingers from her entrapment inside a Mexico City elementary school.

The President ordered the evacuation of patients from damaged hospitals amid widespread power cuts and fears of more buildings collapsing from aftershocks.

Authorities say at least 21 children and five adults died when the school collapsed when central Mexico was struck by a 7.1 magnitude quake.

Rescuers have posted the incredible moment they freed a golden retriever from the rubble.

She wiggled her fingers to show that she was alive, and the girl informed rescuers that at least "five more children alive" were trapped near her. TIME also reports confirmation from Education Secretary Aurelio Nuno that the girl known as Frida Sofia is alive, but officials can not find relatives of any missing child named Frida.

At least one more minor and an adult were believed to be trapped at the school, but it was Sofia who had sent an SOS to her family from her cellphone and spoken to rescuers. It collapsed as teachers were attempting to escort the children outside to safety.

Less than two weeks ago, a magnitude-8.1 quake struck off the southern coast of the country, killing at least 90, according to the governor of the state of Oaxaca. Almost two dozen children have been found dead there, and several remained unaccounted for Thursday. According to media reports and Oxfam staff in Mexico, more than 700 people were injured in Mexico City alone. Tuesday's quake struck 21 years to the day after the lethal tremor.

Several missionary apartments at multiple missions sustained damage, the church's statement indicated, including a few that are now uninhabitable.

The new death toll was announced by Mexico's emergency services chief and the president's office.

Hundreds of people wearing makeshift protective clothing formed human chains to remove debris and bring essential supplies like water and medicines into the affected areas.

Dozens of collection centers were set up for citizens to contribute food, medicine, tents, and other supplies.
