Turkish woman rescued from quake rubble after over 100 hours

Emergency personnels lead a rescue operation to save 25-year-old Ayse from the rubble of a collapsed building in Kahramanmaras, on February 10, 2023, five days after a 7,8-magnitude earthquake struck southeast Turkey. –

Searchers were still pulling survivors on February 8 from the rubble of the earthquake that killed over 11,200 people in Turkey and Syria, even as the window for rescues narrowed.

For two days and nights since the 7.8 magnitude quake, thousands of searchers have worked in freezing temperatures to find those still alive under flattened buildings on either side of the border.
