    A photo of a Syrian photographer rescuing a child victim after a bombing in the country has gone viral online, NBC News reported.  

    Abd Alkader Habak told NBC News he was taking pictures of Syrians being evacuated aboard buses on the outskirts of Aleppo Saturday when a huge bomb hit.

    Habak, a photographer and anti-government activist, said he came across children lying on the ground after the blast. When he realized one child was dead and another was clinging to life, he said he put down his camera.

    Habak then picked up the child who appeared to still be breathing and ran to seek shelter.
