A touching video of a civil aid defense worker breaking down in tears after saving the life of an infant in Syria has gone viral on social media.

After airstrikes struck Idlib on Thursday, the White Helmet volunteer Abu Kifah rescued the one month-old infant from beneath the rubble after digging for two hours.

The video shows him holding her in his arms, as he burst into tears. He said: “As I pulled her out, I imagined that she was my own daughter.”

Abu Kifah along with three or four other volunteers were able to rescue the baby and the rest of her family.
