A picture of a smiling baby is circulating among Iranians on social media with many seeing it as hope after the earthquake tragedy on Sunday.

The (London) Independent reported that the baby was found “alive and well”, three days after a deadly earthquake struck the Iran-Iraq border.

The magnitude 7.3 quake has killed more than 500 people.

Although the search for survivors continue, fewer people are being pulled alive from the wreckage.
