Syrian baby girl born beneath the rubble

The 7.8 magnitude earthquake that shook Turkey and Syria, and which was also felt in neighboring countries, is estimated to have claimed over 15,000 lives according to conservative estimates.

Stories of survival have been equally incredible amid the throes of anguish and grief. Recently a baby girl was pulled from beneath a mountain of rubble. She had been born there for three hours before rescuers found her alive. Her family was not so fortunate.

The baby girl who was pulled from the debris covered in dust is receiving medical attention and appeared to be out of any further life-threatening dangers. The World Health Organization (WHO) recently said the death toll could increase eight-fold. Rescuers continue to search for possible survivors hoping for more miracles.
