In Henan, China, rescue workers managed to rescue a baby girl in the middle of the scrap, the BBC reported.
The moment recorded on the video shows how a baby about three or four months old is found.
- I heard the baby's voice and at that moment the rescuers had just arrived and managed to save the child.
His mother had thrown him in a higher spot, a family member told Southern Metropolis Daily.
The baby's mother's body was found on Thursday.
Rescuers told Beijing Youth Day that the woman was in a position that looked like she had lifted something up.
- It was at that crucial moment that he raised his child and that is why the baby survived, one of the rescue workers said.
According to the Global Times, the baby and mother were found in the collapsed house.
Another woman who was apparently a neighbor was also found dead in the house.
