An amateur video which was apparently filmed in Syria and posted on YouTube shows a dramatic scene where a young boy rescues a terrified girl hiding underneath a car as bullets and gunfire rain down on them.

The video went viral on Tuesday after it was posted by the Shaam News Network.

In the clip, the boy is seen running toward the girl, then stopping after it appeared he was hit by gunfire. He then gets up, grabs the young girl by the hand, and ushers her away from the fighting.
