teams scour rubble for survivors. So far officials have reported 34 deaths
Over 120 people are still trapped this Sunday under tons of rubble after a deadly 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck the southern Taiwanese city of Tainan on Saturday, government officials said, adding that the death toll has risen to at least 34, including seven children.
Numerous buildings collapsed across the city, which is home to just under 2 million people, including a 17-story apartment complex that fell into itself after the tremor.
Rescuers continued to pull survivors from the Wei-guan Golden Dragon Building on Sunday, including a 20-year-old identified by Taiwan media as Huang Kuang-wei and another man in his 20s surnamed Kuo.
