Over 100 children are thought to be trapped in the rubble after their school building collapsed. Emergency crews are currently on the scene and working around the clock to find survivors.
The incident happened in Lagos, Nigeria. As many as 10 children have already been found in the debris by rescuers who are searching for trapped students.
"A Reuters reporter at the scene saw a boy of 10 being pulled from the rubble covered in dust but with no visible injuries. A crowd erupted into cheers as another child was pulled from the wreckage. The two were among eight children residents said had been rescued so far," reported CNBC.
The school was located on the third floor of the building. At this time, no exact cause has been released for the collapse.
"Nigeria is frequently hit by building collapses, with weak enforcement of regulations and poor construction materials often used. In 2016, more than 100 people were killed when a church came down in southeastern Nigeria," reported CNBC.
