A 14-day-old baby girl was today pulled alive from the shattered ruins of a building in the city of Ercis in earthquake-ravaged Turkey - after 47 hours trapped in the rubble.
Azra - her name means 'Help' in Hebrew - was found naked, making her survival all the more remarkable because of the freezing temperatures gripping the region.
The baby was handed to rescuers by her mother, who was alive but still trapped in the wreckage. She was later freed as well, and rescuers completed the hat trick by then removing Azra's grandmother injured but alive from the debris.
Bystanders broke into spontaneous applause as emergency workers cradled the fragile child with enormous care as they scrambled over the rubble and debris to get her to a a medical unit.
And this afternoon, a ten-year-old boy was pulled alive from the rubble after an incredible 54 HOURS.
The rescues give hope to hundreds in both Ercis and Van that loved ones still missing after Sunday's 7.2-magnitude earthquake may be alive.

People being rescued are possibly the only comforting news that one can expect, during some earthquake aftermath:

Teen pulled from rubble 4 days after deadly Turkey quake

Quote:
ERCIS, Turkey — Rescuers pulled out a 19-year-old alive from the rubble of a collapsed building early Thursday, four days after a powerful earthquake hit eastern Turkey.

Television footage showed rescue workers freeing the teenager, who looked exhausted. He is the first to be pulled out alive since rescuers evacuated a university student and two teachers on Wednesday.

Rain and snow are compounding difficulties for the thousands of survivors rendered homeless in the earthquake that killed 523 people and shattered over 2,200 buildings. There has been a scramble for tents amid fears that survivors would be exposed to plunging temperatures.

Some quake victims have blamed the ruling AK party for a slow response and accused officials of handing aid to supporters, after standing in long queues for tents only to be told that there were none left.

"Everyone is getting sick and wet. We have been waiting in line for four days like this and still nothing. It gets to our turn and they say they have run out," said Fetih Zengin, 38, an estate agent whose house was badly damaged in Ercis, a town of 100,000 that was hardest hit by Sunday's 7.2 magnitude quake.

"We slept under a piece of plastic erected on some wood boards we found. We have 10 children in our family, they are getting sick. Everyone needs a tent, snow is coming. It's a disaster."

The death toll rose to 523 and the number of injured was put at 1,650 in the biggest quake in more than a decade in Turkey. The prime ministers center for crisis and emergency management said 185 people have been rescued since the quake hit.

Sad thing is they will probably rebuild using the same shitty building practices.
