A 10-year-old girl was saved out of the rubble by firefighters following the 6.2-magnitude earthquake in Italy.

In an emotional video aired on Sky TG24 Italia, a firefighter moves away the debris with the help of search team members and other men before the group identifies a foot then a leg and her other leg.

In the background, a man can be heard saying the name “Julia” moments before the firefighter gently pulls the young girl from the gray wreckage.

Though this child was found alive by rescuers, many were not so lucky. Over 240 people have been killed and over 360 injured in central Italy Wednesday, according to Italy’s Civil Protection Department as reported by CNN.

The magnitude-6.2 quake hit at about 3:35 a.m. local time about 65 miles from Rome, the BBC reported. The towns hardest hit are Amatrice, Accumoli and Pescara del Tronto and the death toll rose to 120 by the evening, according to the Associated Press.
