77-year-old woman rescued in 212th hour of quake in Turkey
About 212 hours after the first earthquake, a 77-year-old woman was recovered alive from the rubble of a seven-story apartment block in the city of Adiyaman, Turkish media reported.
The earthquake survivor, named Fatma Gungor, was wearing an oxygen mask, wrapped in a gold foil blanket and strapped to a stretcher. She was carried by rescuers from the rubble of the building to a waiting ambulance.
Afterwards, Gungor's relatives embraced the rescue team, which was made up of military personnel and members of the AFAD disaster management agency.
Nine other survivors were rescued Tuesday in Turkey, including two brothers, ages 17 and 21, who were recovered from an apartment block in Kahramanmaras province.
A Syrian man and a young woman in Antakya were also rescued after more than 200 hours in the rubble.
