Moment sobbing child and baby are pulled to safety two days after earthquake hit Turkey and Syria (Video)Footage has captured the heart-wrenching moment a sobbing child was dug out from the rubble following Syria’s devastating earthquake.
Heroic rescue workers were videoed desperately foraging through debris to reach several young children and family members.
The survivors were said to be buried under the wreckage of their home in Jindires, Aleppo, of northern Syria where the worst of the damage was felt.
Syria’s Civil Defence workers were filmed frantically calling out in the dark, wet remains of the building.
The team are seen to find one child whose lower half is trapped under bricks and rubble – her head appears to be covered in blood.
More workers also work to lift bricks away from another child’s body, with one person feeling their wrist to check for a pulse.
Amid screams and wails, the camera turns again to a waving hand – the only body part visible from a pile of rubble.
A baby is also filmed trapped beneath a huge slab of rock.
As the rescuers continue to scoop up the debris with their bare hands, one child begins to sob and cough.
But soon after, they are lifted out alongside a man on a stretcher.
