Syrian girl is saved - level 3

Syrian girl is saved - level 3

22-07-2014 15:00

This unbelievable footage was captured by Syrian rescue workers and shows a baby, said to be no more than two months old, being rescued from rubble in the war-torn city of Aleppo.

The remarkable video shows the baby crying, as her whole body, completely covered in dust, is extracted from the concrete rubble.

A rescue worker can be heard shouting "It's a miracle!" as the small head is seen emerging from debris.

It is impossible to independently verify the authenticity of the 30-second clip or where it was shot. The video was posted by a group calling itself the Aleppo Civil Defence, a rescue team working in a rebel-held area of the northern city.

The baby girl does appear unhurt at the end of the video, but if we hear any update on the baby's status we will keep you posted.

Difficult words: footage (video), rubble (broken stones or bricks from a building), debris (pieces of something that has been destroyed).


Why do people keep fighting wars?
