A BRIT woman and three kids including a baby have tonight been rescued after being trapped under rubble for days in the aftermath of Storm Dorian.
The Royal Navy freed the casualties after a huge rescue mission on hurricane-hit Bahamas battered by 225mph monster winds.

Helicopter crew rescued a woman, her two children and a baby to Nassau.
Medical officer Surgeon Lieutenant Rebecca Miles said: “The children were in a poorly condition and required immediate medical care.
“It was hugely rewarding to use my training and skills to provide essential and immediate life-saving care to this family.”
Flight Commander Lieutenant Lee Holborn added: “We are ready to provide assistance where necessary and it is always rewarding to know that you have made a significant difference, not only to the wider island, but to the individual families of those affected.”
On a later flight, RFA medical technician Graham Trevaskis helped an elderly woman with diabetes who was also airlifted to Nassau.
The RFA Mounts Bay crew have so far delivered shelter kits, ration packs and water, the Royal Navy said.
The Wildcat will also be airlifting relief to outlying, cut-off communities, it added.

The Royal Navy said that it will bring ashore heavy plant equipment such as all-terrain quads, dump trucks and diggers to clear away debris and allow more aid to reach the island.
It added: “RFA Mounts Bay’s specialist crew and kit make her best placed to open the port and clear the airport runway so more international aid, including relief arriving from the United States, can reach the island.”
RFA Mounts Bay has been in the Caribbean since June in preparation for the hurricane season and was re-tasked last week to sail to the Bahamas in anticipation of Hurricane Dorian, the Royal Navy said.
The ship has water carriers, hygiene and shelter kits on board, as well as the helicopter which is being used to fly over the area to assess the damage and airlift in supplies.
