    The emotional moment when doctors delivered the baby of a Syrian woman injured by an airstrike in the besieged city of Aleppo has been captured on camera, NBC News reported.

    The boy's mother was seriously injured as she walked to the hospital to give birth.

    Her right arm and leg were broken and surgeons had to pick shrapnel from her body before performing an emergency cesarean section.

    The video was filmed by Waad al-Kateab and aired by Britain's Channel 4 News. It shows the agonizing moment when the boy was pulled, lifeless, from his mother's womb.

    After several minutes, the boy suddenly shows signs of life. Eventually his cry echoes around the makeshift emergency room.

    The footage was recorded in July and aired on Thursday.
