A parent has narrated how he rescued his daughter among the debris of the collapsed classrooms at Precious Talent School, Dagoretti South.

Speaking about the accident to the media, Steven Odhiambo a parent at the school said,

My daughter and son study here. My son is OKay but my daughter got injured.

I was here at 7:00 O’clock helping in the rescue mission and among those rescued was my daughter who is in class three.

20 minutes after I went home with her she started complaining of a headache. from the outside she looked OKay and had no visible injuries.

Odhiambo who was now concerned took his daughter to seek medical help not knowing what awaited them.

I took her to a nearby dispensary but they referred me to Kenyatta National Hospital. My daughter was accompanied by my wife and she is receiving treatment.
