Baby rescued alive, two days after Turkish quake
Text size Aa Aa

It is being hailed as a miracle, two days after Turkey’s deadly earthquake.

A 14-day-old baby girl has been pulled from the rubble. Little Azra was plucked from the arms of her mother under what is left of an apartment block in the devastated city of Ercis.

Amazingly, she is now doing well in hospital.

And more miracles were on the way.

Having saved the child, rescuers managed to get her mother out of the debris of the 7.2 magnitude quake. She, too, is in remarkably good health. Then the infant’s grandmother was pulled free. She is injured but expected to survive.

Sunday’s earthquake has killed more than 430 people and left thousands homeless.
