Hope: Young Girl Trapped Under Rubble With Chrisitan Atsu Found After 8 Days


More than a week after the deadly Turkey earthquake struck, a small girl was rescued from the rubble of an apartment building in southern Turkey.

Along with other players like Ghanaian player Chrisitan Atsu, Miray had been trapped in the ruins for 178 hours—seven and a half days.

As she was raised out of the shadows, workers could be seen yelling “God is amazing” and cheering.

On Monday, many more people were rescued, including a 13-year-old child who had been stranded for 182 hours. Rescues, however, are getting less common as the death toll approaches 35,000.

This is mainly because the human body can only go without water for a finite amount of time.

The little girl named Miray, who was saved on Monday in the city of Adiyaman was strapped to a stretcher and taken away by rescuers. Teams on the ground were reportedly looking for her older sister, according to local media.

In the severely affected Hatay province, 13-year-old Kaan was freed after spending 182 hours trapped, and Naide Umay, a lady, was discovered alive after 175 hours.

Rescuers were striving to reach a grandmother, mother, and infant who were all trapped but still alive in the city of Kahramanmaras.

To find any remaining survivors, thousands of teams from all across the area, including coal miners and specialists with thermal cameras and sniffing dogs, have been searching the wreckage of the collapsed building.
