This footage, from Nour Media Centre, is identified as coming after an air strike in the Syrian city of Aleppo on Jan. 22. An activist has identified the girl as 14-month-old Ghina Khalil; he said her mother was killed and one sister is missing, though five other sisters survived. The girl appeared remarkably unscathed after being buried for at least three minutes, according to the video.

The Associated Press says the video corresponds with its reporting of events in the area.
