Mexico City recently a devastating and deadly 7.1 magnitude earthquake. The large, historic city saw many of its beautiful buildings, many with people inside, collapse. It’s an absolutely heartbreaking event for Mexico.

After the rescue efforts were underway, there was one rescue in particular that has now gone viral because it was all caught on camera. While rescuers were digging through a collapsed building, they noticed something was moving under the debris.

Digging through the rubble was difficult, but the rescuers picked up their speed to get this little girl out of the collapsed building — just one of the many buildings that toppled during this huge earthquake.
