According to reports her name was Frida Sofia and she was 12 years old. 23 hours after the school collapsed a video went viral on social media as new broke out about Frida Sofia. Millions of viewers watched in horror as construction workers and rescue teams from several countries franticly and painfully removed chunks of rubble in a endless task to find Frida Sofia alive.
