Baby saved from Laos dam disaster by Thai cave rescue volunteers

Post by JWWhite » Sat Jul 28, 2018 7:31 am

APPATEU, Laos: The rescue of a baby boy, terrified and hungry after days without food, has been captured in a viral video showing the infant survivor of a dam collapse in southern Laos being carefully carried through swirling flood waters and waist-high mud.

Footage of volunteers from Thailand rescuing 14 people, including the baby, went viral when it was released on Friday (Jul 27) as an increasingly international relief mission scrambles to save lives in a disaster that has left scores dead and missing.
