    The volunteer group known as the White Helmets are not immune to the tragedies they face while trying to save civilians in Syria, NBC News reported.

    Aleppo has been the target of airstrikes and bombs, transforming the city into a rubble-filled battleground. The video, which was filmed Thursday in the Idlib province, shows emotional volunteers after the hours-long rescue of a baby.

    Doctors Without Borders reported that from Sept. 21 through Sept. 26, more than 278 people, including 96 children, have been killed from the attacks. U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power has condemned the Syrian government and Russia for “unleashing a savagery” against people they’re labeling terrorists.

    “Children are not terrorists,” she said. “Rescue workers are not terrorists. Hospital workers are not terrorists.”
