Crowds burst into cries of joy as a dog, trapped in rubble after the devastating Mexico earthquake, was pulled out alive and unharmed.

The golden retriever looked bewildered as he rescue services extricated him from the concrete debris that had crumbled around him.

Fortunately, he appeared to be safe and well as he was lifted out of the rubble in the Alvaro Obregon area of Mexico City.

As he was lifted up, the crowds gathered around the scene erupted into cheers and applause. Then, as rescuers took the dog to safety, witnesses gave him a little ruffle on the head.

At least 217 people have tragically died after a devastating 7.1 magnitude quake struck the country.

People have been frantically searching through the rubble of collapsed schools, homes and apartment buildings this morning, desperately hoping to find survivors.

It is the deadliest earthquake in 32 years, since thousands were killed by an earthquake in 1985.

The disaster struck on the anniversary of that quake. Just hours before it hit, people around the country had held earthquake drills to mark the date.

One of the most desperate rescue efforts was at a primary and secondary school in southern Mexico City, where a wing of the three-storey building collapsed.
