Miracle Volcano Baby Pulled From Ash-Covered Building After Guatemala Eruption
This baby is a much-need ray of hope and a sign of life in Guatemala.
The Guatemalan police released this video of this baby girl’s rescue.
The BBC reports the country’s Fuego volcano erupted about noon local time on Sunday.
There are at least 69 known fatalities in the villages that surround the active volcano.
The story explains Fuego is made up of alternating layers of lava, ash and rock.
When a stratovolcano erupts, the rock layer is smashed into tiny dust particles.
That ash is now spread all over the surrounding area.
With such devastation, this sign of life, this baby’s precious face is a much needed bright light.
If you’re wondering how you can help those impacted by eruption, GoFundMe has compiled a list of verified relief efforts where your dollars can have an impact.
The different efforts include getting food and clean water to people in the area. Also, there are links to blood drives and helping out animals in area.
