Syrian Hero Digs for 2 Hours to Rescue Baby Girl and Bursts into Tears when Finally Found her
The unrest in Syria is beyond heartbreaking, but in times of terror, there comes the occasional miracle to let people know that things will someday get better and to just keep fighting.
This unimaginable story from the torn-apart city of Aleppo, Syria, proves that miracles really can happen.
The Syrian Civil Defence -composed entirely of civilians and volunteers- were able to uncover the baby girl and a woman who had been under the crushing weight of the structure for two hours. The responders could not tell if the little girl was still alive. The man who held her began to rock her back and forth, longing for her to show signs of life and then they heard her sweet cries.
He burst into tears.
“Thank God, she doesn’t have one wound, no wounds at all,” the rescue worker says in the video. “Thank God. When I carried her I felt like she was my daughter. I hugged her tight. She moved me deeply.”
The Syrian Civil Defence, also known as the White Helmets, said the child and women were on the fourth floor when the airstrike hit. Her lack of injuries are being hailed as a miracle.
The love of a father is the same regardless of race, creed, or religion. We are all human. We are all in this together.
Take a minute and watch the emotional moment in the video below, that is touching the world.
