Ibrahim al-Hajj, head of media for the White Helmets in Aleppo, tells a must-read story in this article for Aljazeera. His bravery – acted out everyday as he accompanied the White Helmets in Syria, camera in hand, as they ran into the still falling rubble of bombs – led to the filming of Khaled Omar Harrah's rescue of a baby, later knows as the "miracle baby" by an international audience.
Netflix published an original documentary about the White Helmets, and now the NDP is pushing for the White Helmets to receive a Nobel Peace Prize according to the CBC
Harrah died after returning to Syria to continue his work (he was offered a home in America for him and his family). His death is a tragedy in al-Hajj's story, but the story is more an inspirational account of his life and bravery.
