Nairobi flooding, April 2016

Editor's note: The woman who has been found alive in the rubble of a residential building in Nairobi, Kenya, is one of an estimated 80 people missing since it suddenly collapsed Friday amid heavy flooding, killing 33. It's possible she may not be the last to survive the tragedy: a woman was rescued 17 days after the 2013 Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh, and there have been similar stories of survival in the aftermath of the 2007 Haiti earthquake, among others. - Tricia
