Incredible images have emerged of the moment a four-month old baby was rescued from the rubble of a building devastated by the Nepal earthquake , 22 hours after the disaster struck.

The Nepalese newspaper Kathmandu Today published images of the dust-covered baby boy as he was pulled to safety by members of the army assisting the on-going search and rescue effort.

Soldiers initially missed the child as they searched through the wreckage for survivors. He was only found when they heard a faint cry from beneath the ruins of the building, leading them to check the entire area again.
