Earthquake in Turkey and Syria: a little girl protects her brother under the rubble, a moving video melts hearts

Daily digital news desk: Five earthquakes in two days. Everything around has been destroyed. The death toll is increasing by leaps and bounds. Everywhere the eye can see only signs of destruction. In the midst of this destruction, despair, tears over the loss of loved ones, there are moments that offer new hope. Love teaches to believe. One of those scenes has recently spread on social networks. Where a girl is seen clinging to her younger brother despite being trapped under rubble.

The caption to the video circulating on social media read. The video is from Turkey. And the girl is only seven years old. As a result of the earthquake, many houses in Turkey have collapsed. Two children may have been trapped under one of those debris. In the video, the seven-year-old’s head is trapped between one of the collapsed walls. But not caring about her own head, she placed one of her hands on her brother’s head. As if the broken wall was going to be blocked by that little hand.

He writes: “The seven-year-old girl who was trying to protect her brother from her by putting her hands on her head was in this condition for approximately 17 hours. Both were rescued safely. I don’t see anyone sharing this news. If the girl had died, someone would have shared it! Please spread the good news…”
