A 17-year-old girl has been rescued 248 hours after last week’s devastating earthquakes in Turkey, reported BBC News.
The injured Aleyna Olmez (17) was pulled from the ruins of a flattened apartment block in Kahramanmaraş, a southern city near the epicentre, after surviving freezing weather conditions, for 10 days.
Speaking to the AFP news agency, Ali Akdogan, a coal miner who took part in the rescue, said:
She looked to be in good health. She opened and closed her eyes.
We have been working here in this building for a week now… we are happy whenever we find a living thing – even a cat.
In the same city, three women and two children were found alive on Wednesday.
More than 41 000 people have died in Tukey and neighbouring Syria from the 7.8 magnitude earthquake.
