'They just keep children from the rubble, but we do not know anything about my daughter,' said a 32-year-old woman who was waiting for news about her seven-year-old child.

The rescue operation at the building received a lot of attention in Mexico. There is still uncertainty about the total number of victims. Rescuers spoke earlier of 37 deaths, but the minister of education later held at least 25.
