Mexico quake: resucers trying to reach girl trapped in schoolRescuers looking for survivors beneath a collapsed schoolhouse in Mexico City are trying to pinpoint the location of a girl who's alive -- but trapped -- beneath the debris, officials said Thursday.

Emergency workers have been at the site of the Colegio Enrique Rebsamen school since shortly after the 7.1-magnitude earthquake struck on Tuesday afternoon. Nearly two dozen children have been found dead there, and several remained unaccounted for Thursday.

"At this moment we know that at least one girl is alive inside," Adm. Jose Luis Vergara told Foro TV Thursday.

It's believed the girl is 12 years old, and temperature readings taken at the site also suggest that two others might also be alive under the debris.

Rescuers have been racing to find survivors beneath the school, located in Mexico City's southeast.
