A UC Berkeley graduate who runs an online restaurant in Kenya was among at least 175 wounded when Islamic extremists stormed a mall in Nairobi on Saturday.
Elaine Dang, 26, who according to her LinkedIn account graduated from the university in 2009, posted a Twitter photo of herself early Sunday morning (California time) recuperating in a hospital, under the heading, "Proof that I'm OK."
A tweet also was sent out early Sunday by Eat Out Kenya, the online restaurant and bar site, for which the San Diego native works.
That tweet said Dang was "recovering well" and is "concerned about the others who were not lucky to get out."
Dang's family could not be reached immediately for comment, and Eat Out Kenya did not respond immediately to Facebook and Twitter requests for comment.
CNN reported Sunday morning that at least 68 people had died in the tragedy, and that at least 175 were injured. The site also reported that about 30 hostages remained inside the mall, where a standoff was ongoing.
The Associated Press reported that gunmen used grenades and assault rifles in Saturday's attack at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi. Somali militant group al-Shabab has claimed responsibility for the attack.
