Rescue workers pull baby from rubble in Aleppo

aleppo baby rescued

Syrian rescue workers have pulled out, on Friday, a two month-old infant from beneath the rubble of a building in the battle-scarred city of Aleppo, Syria.

The rescue workers, who call themselves the Aleppo Civil Defense, captured the footage that shows a man pulling out a baby covered in dust and crying from a small crevice in the rubble having been trapped for 16 hours.

“It’s a miracle!” a rescue worker shouted as a small head is seen emerging from debris.

A jubilant man then clutches the freed child in his arms while his co-workers off-camera cry “God is great.”

It was impossible to independently confirm the authenticity of the 30-second clip or where it was filmed.

Regime air strikes are a daily occurrence in Syria and have killed hundreds of people in rebel-held areas of the city.

Rebels routinely fire mortar rounds at government-held western zones of Aleppo, which was Syria’s commercial hub before its civil war exploded in 2011.
