Images from the local paper show the boy, Sonit Awal, buried beneath bricks and rubbish caused from a 7.8 magnitude earthquake which rocked Nepal on Saturday. His father had heard his baby crying beneath the rubble, but was forced to wait through night for the rescue crews to arrive to save his son.
The baby has been cleared of any injuries after being checked at Bhaktapur hospital.
