Chandigarh, February 8
For seven-year-old Syrian girl, who was trapped for 17 hours under earthquake rubble, must have felt like 17 years.
She kept her hand over her little brother’s head while being stuck in earthquake making sure that he remains safe. Both of them were rescued from the rubble of the collapsed building later.
The image was shared by UN representative Mohamed Safa.
“The 7 year old girl who kept her hand on her little brother’s head to protect him while they were under the rubble for 17 hours has made it safely,” Safa said in his tweet.
