More than 280 declared dead following Mexico earthquake
The death toll following the Mexico earthquake has risen to more than 280 as the hope of finding more survivors is slowly diminishing.
A school in Mexico City collapsed, and fears that people could be trapped inside kept Mexican and international media in rolling coverage.
A video from CNN gives a closer look at the area around the school and inside.
Survivors say they barely made it out of the school alive, and crews were pulling survivors from the rubble after the building collapsed.
Trained rescue dogs are helping crews find people. One rescue dog named Frida is part of the Canine Unit for Mexico's Navy and so far, she has helped rescue more than 50 people.
Frida wears a camera to help give crews a view of areas they can't reach.
