Amid the chaos of thousands trying to flee Afghanistan post its control by Taliban, this specific video made headlines speaking of the desperate attempt and fear the Afghans are facing right now.

According to the US Marine Corps, the baby who was handed to a US soldier over a razor-wire fence has been safely reunited with the father. Major Jim Stenger, a spokesperson for the Marine Corps informed that the baby was treated at a medical treatment facility and is now safe at the airport.
