Video: Syrian girl rescued from destroyed building

A Syrian girl was found on Wednesday alive under the debris of a destroyed building shelled two days ago by Syrian government forces.

The victim’s father called on people to help extract the girl from the rubble in the Damascus neighborhood of Jobar.

In a YouTube video, rescuers were seen trying to carefully remove the wreckage as they heard the young girl’s muffled voice.

“It’s her, it’s her,” they shouted, after sighting the girl.

The girl’s father stepped out of the hole to allow rescuers to pull her out.

“My daughter, my daughter,” said her father, his eyes filled with tears.
