Cheers as rescuers save a whole family in Syria

STORY: The father, along with his son and his daughter, were pulled out from beneath the rubble where they had been stuck for over two days after an earthquake struck Syria and Turkey on Monday (February 6).

A video shared by Syria's White Helmets showed rescue workers and people standing by erupt in wild celebrations after the family was pulled from the rubble one after the other.

At least 2,500 people have been killed, and thousands more injured in Syria following several deadly earthquakes and aftershocks in neighbouring Turkey, authorities and rescuers said on Tuesday (February 7).
