This is the incredible moment a four-month-old baby was rescued alive around 30 hours after a four-storey building collapsed on her, killing 14 people.

A little girl named Malak has been hailed as an “image of hope and life” after a “miracle” in Jordan.

Her mother said she had a “gut feeling she was alive” and added that “words can’t describe her happiness” if she was right.

Tragedy struck when a residential building in Jabal al-Weibdeh, Oman, collapsed on September 13.

An extensive search was launched after it was said around 25 people were inside.

The Jordanian prosecutor ordered the arrest of three people in connection with the case, local media reported.

The emotional video shows Malak covered in dust but breathing as she is pulled from the wreckage. After handing over to other rescuers, she was rushed to the hospital.

Isra Raed, a 26-year-old mother, started screaming, “Where’s my baby girl?” Where is my girl?” when she arrived at the scene.

She left her daughter with a friend who lived in the basement of the building so that she could deliver an order from her cosmetics company.

“I had a feeling that she was alive and my husband reassured me that she was waiting for us,” Israa told Agence France-Presse.

“I knew it was her by her pink pajamas. Words cannot describe how happy I am.”

Jordan’s civil defense said the new footage showed “moments that will not remain in our memories”.

The image of the four-month-old baby will remain an icon of hope and life, the statement added.

The search ended on Saturday, and all the missing people have now been accounted for, officials said.
