There’s been precious little to cheer about in central Mexico after a devastating 7.1 magnitude earthquake hit the area on Tuesday. The quake left hundreds dead and reduced buildings to rubble.
But, as with every tragedy, moments of hope and heroism shine brightest in the darkest times. In this case, the heroes were rescue workers who dug tirelessly through the rubble looking for survivors, and the moment of hope was when they pulled what appears to be a frightened, but otherwise fine, golden retriever from the remains of a collapsed building, causing the crowd to erupt in cheers and applause.
It’s unknown at this time where exactly this video was recorded, but it was quite possibly Mexico City, which was hit hard by the quake.
People on Twitter seemed almost as excited as the people in the crowd.

One person even responded to the tweet by saying the dog is named Nala and belongs to a friend of theirs. So with any luck it will be reunited with its owner soon.
Mexico still has a long way to go to recover from the devastation caused by the quake, but moments and people like this will hopefully inspire as they recover.
