DRAMATIC FOOTAGE: Syrian Child Pulled From Earthquake Rubble


Dramatic footage has emerged showing the moment rescue workers pulled a toddler covered in blood from under the rubble in the northwest Syrian city of Jinderis.

The dramatic rescue too place on Monday evening, when the toddler was pulled alive from the wreckage of a collapsed building. Video from the White Helmets, the emergency service in the region, shows a rescuer digging through crushed concrete amid twisted metal until the little girl, named Nour, appeared. The girl, still half buried, looks up dazedly as they tell her, “Dad is here, don’t be scared. … Talk to your dad, talk.”

A rescuer cradled her head in his hands and tenderly wiped dust from around her eyes before she was pulled out.
