California mudslides: Rescuers say dozens still missing in rubble


Hundreds of rescuers are desperately combing wreckage in Southern California for nearly two dozen people still missing after deadly mudslides.

More than 100 homes were destroyed, and another 500 have been damaged following the deluge that overwhelmed an area scorched by wildfires last month.

At least 15 people have died and 28 injuries have been reported.

On Tuesday, a rescue worker tearfully described pulling a toddler from under several feet of debris.

It was said that the two-year-old girl, whom he described as a "muddy doll", was taken to hospital and suffered an injury to her hip.
