More than 100 people were still missing Sunday after an earthquake struck southern Taiwan, causing the collapse of a high-rise apartment building that left at least 34 dead, authorities said.
Rescuers managed to pull more than 170 survivors from the wreckage in Tainan, the worst-hit city, following the 6.4-magnitude earthquake that hit at dawn Saturday, but there are still about 124 people trapped in the rubble, the Associated Press reports.
The building collapse caused 24 of the 26 confirmed deaths so far, including that of a 6-month-old baby girl, according to CBS News. Rescuers had also found the bodies of a 10-day-old infant at the site on Saturday, the AP reports.
