Twenty-one children and four adults were killed when the building collapsed. Several children are still missing.

Doctor Paola Vidal told 22News, “I’m right here at the school that fell down with about 400 kids. We’ve taken out a lot (of kids). There’s about 20 kids that we still don’t know how they are, if they’re even alive.”

The school is one of hundreds of buildings destroyed by the country’s deadliest earthquake in a generation.
