A heroic young boy in Syria has become an online hero after video footage emerged appearing to show him braving a shower of bullets to who some believe is his sister, trapped in the middle of a shoot-out.

Footage released by the Shaam News Network, a news channel run by Syrian activists in Damascus, appears to show the boy initially lying on the ground as gunfire shots ring out near piles of bricks and rubble. The child is then seen getting up and running towards the burnt out shell of a car.

As he runs, he is seemingly hit by sniper fire. The boy stumbles and collapses to the ground, apparently dead.

Many viewers have suggested the boy may have been pretending to be dead in order to prevent the sniper from firing any more bullets.

It is not known where the footage was taken or what happened to either child after the incident.

The authenticity of the video has not yet been independently verified and many discussions are now focusing on whether it is legitimate or not.
