The giant earth quake which struck in the middle of the night on Wednesday, had rescuers working round the clock in a desperate bid to find survivors.

Chief firefighter Danilo Dionesei confirmed that a 10 year old girl was pulled alive from the rubble after being trapped for 17 hours in the town of Pescara del Tronto.

The footage shared online shows rescuers appearing to shout “Pietro” down a gap where the young girl was  trapped.

Footage shows just the dust-covered legs of the youngster as emergency crews tried desperately to free her from the rubble.

One rescuer could be heard saying:

‘You can hear something under here. Quiet, quiet.’ He then urged the child to wriggle free one rescue worker said: ‘Come on, Giulia, come on, Giulia. … Watch your head.’

Cheers broke out when she was pulled out Rescuers frantically pushed away the remains of rubble from the child and eventually, they were able to pull her out alive to the relief and applause of an on-looking crowd.  They rushed her to the hospital but her condition wasn’t revealed by Daily Express.
