An eight-year-old girl has been pulled alive from rubble in Taiwan following a powerful earthquake over the weekend.

She was one of two rescued earlier today.

The other woman found alive, is believed to have survived because she was shielded under the body of her husband.

More than 117 people are still missing - they are thought to have been buried when a high-rise block in the southern city of Tainan collapsed.

At least 37 people died in the 6.4 magnitude quake.

This video, posted by YANG Zong enjoy on Facebook shows the devastation at the scene:
