A 2-year-old toddler girl was rescued 22 hours after a rail crash involving two high-speed trains in eastern China’s Zhejiang Province.

Xinhua News Agency said the child was found Sunday evening while rescuers were clearing one of the train cars. The girl, Xiang Weiyi, was unconscious when found, but suffered no apparent physical injuries after being trapped in the last carriage of the train, which had stopped for sudden electricity outrage in a lightening strike , and was hit from behind by the second train.

The girl's uncle told reporters that she had been traveling with her parents, and that he did not know if they had survived the crash.

The Ministry of Railways said in a statement that the first four cars of the moving train and the last two of the stalled train derailed.
