Seven hours later, the little girl was pulled from the rubble. They put her on a stretcher and took her to the hospital. According to local media, she held tightly to her father's hand the entire time she was being carried into the ambulance.
"We dug with our own hands to get the mother, father and son out." We did the same for little Aisha. We managed to dig her out. As soon as I heard what happened, we got into the car and rushed here," said a colleague of Ayesha's mother.
