The sad story of the devastating earthquake that shook Turkey and Syria with a magnitude of 7.8 continues to resonate.
Many amateur videos are circulating on social media showing the rubble of buildings strewn about after the earthquake. Not only scattered buildings, but the victims who were still pinned under the wreckage also kept screaming for help.
Unfortunately, the winter weather that is hitting Turkey hampered the evacuation process. Meanwhile, evacuation in Syria is increasingly difficult due to the ongoing war.
A Twitter account with the username @Talhaofficial01 recently shared a video of evacuating newborn babies amidst the buildings’ ruins after the Syria earthquake.
In the video, one rescuer can be seen running from the destroyed building while carrying the tiny newborn baby to a safe place.
Then another man is seen chasing after him to provide a dusty green blanket to wrap and keep warm the tiny body of the newborn baby.
As reported by Daily Mail, the baby’s mother, a refugee from the Deir Ezzor region in eastern Syria, gave birth while trapped under the rubble of a collapsed building in the city of Aleppo.
After giving birth to her daughter, the mother sadly could not be saved and passed away.
Heartbreaking uploads of the birth of a baby amidst the ruins caused by the earthquake were flooded with comments from internet users. They sympathize with the earthquake that rocked Turkey and Syria.
As is known, an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.8 hits Southern Turkey and Northern Syria on Monday morning, razing buildings to the ground and trapping thousands of people under the rubble.
Another major jolt of 7.5 hits southern Turkey hours after the original earthquake. People were trapped and injured in several countries’ areas while sleeping.
The official website of the United Nations reported that the earthquakes that occurred in Turkey and Syria are estimated to have claimed the lives of more than 10 thousand people, considering that there are still many victims trapped in the ruins of buildings that have not been evacuated until now.
