Updates on the Turkey- Syria Earthquake

Man rescued alive from Rubble


A 45-year-old guy was found alive and breathing in the wreckage twelve days after the terrible earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria and killed tens of thousands of people. He was sent to the hospital for treatment right away. Turkish rescuers wrapped him in a platinum thermal jacket and sent him to a hospital by ambulance. Hakan Yasinoglu has been named as the man. Hakan was fortunately still alive under the wreckage over 12 days later, or 278 hours later.

In contrast to past rescues, where teams celebrated or cheered, the atmosphere on the ground appeared gloomy. Late on Thursday and early on Friday, three more people, including a 14-year-old kid, were successfully rescued. A day earlier, Turkish rescuers had also extricated a lady in her 20s and a 17-year-old kid from the rubble. Although the number of survivors has decreased over the previous few days, rescue crews have been searching the rubble 24 hours a day. The likelihood of discovering more survivors has virtually diminished.

On the other side, the tragic 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria has resulted in more deaths than 41,000. Yet, the survivors are struggling to stay alive in the extreme cold without access to food, water, or other essentials.
