The incredible CCTV footage shows just one of the many acts of heroism in the Lebanon capital of Beirut which has been decimated by a terrible explosion, thought to have been the result of negligent storage of 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate.

A quick-thinking maid scoops up a child in her arms and rushes out of the room as the the Beirut explosion rocks the city in an amazing moment amid the tragedy.

CCTV footage shows the heroic woman slowly vacuum cleaning as the little girl wanders across the play area just before “one of the biggest non-nuclear explosions of all time”.

And within a matter of seconds, window blinds rock forwards before the glass windows burst into smithereens from the shockwave of the blast.

But with an incredible piece of quick-thinking, the maid quickly leans over and grabs the girl and pulls her close to her chest.
