During these moments of grave danger, many have stepped up to selflessly protect those who are most vulnerable. One such hero is a woman who courageously put aside her own safety to save a child from the disastrous impact of the Beirut blast.

In a video featured by Hassan Sajwani on Twitter, the woman who is believed to be a domestic helper can be seen vacuuming the floor next to a child playing in a nursery. She freezes when a loud sound is heard and looks around to identify the cause of the commotion. Just as the big explosion occurred, a wall nearby the toddler collapses. The brave woman can then be seen instinctively grabbing the child, shielding her with her body before she runs out of the room.
