(NEW YORK DAILY NEWS) — A 5-year-old girl was miraculously pulled from her home in southern Kosovo after it was destroyed in an avalanche which claimed the lives of her parents and several relatives, authorities said Sunday.

The child, identified as Asmira Reka, was trapped beneath 33 feet of snow and rubble for at least 10 hours, officials said.

Rescuers found the girl after hearing her screams and the ringing of a cell phone, The Associated Press reported.
