Baby Rescue in Syria: Citizen Rescue After Air Strike

Syria baby rescue: Father speaks of his relief.

The father of a little girl who was pulled from rubble after an airstrike in Aleppo, Syria recently spoke about her rescue. Video of two-year-old Ghina Bassam showed her being pulled alive from the ruins of her house after an airstrike. Her father thanked God that her rescuers kept on digging.

Her uncle, who helped rescue her, spoke of the moment he heard the cries from beneath the rubble. “They kept looking until they found Ghina. They heard a voice and kept digging until they uncovered her. Thank God. She was covered with around a meter of rubble. We were digging and we heard a voice and we recovered her. We don’t have trucks [bulldozers] to dig and there is a another child aged eight but we could not find her. She is my niece, all the girls here were my nieces…all the neighbors were killed, why? What’s their guilt? Who cares about us?”
