A three-year-old girl who miraculously survived a building falling on top of her has been rescued after she was trapped for four days in the wake of the earthquake in Izmir, Turkey.
The magnitude 7 quake struck on Friday, October 30, and so far has killed 102 people, with one thousand more injured and families left homeless.
In the clip, the girl, identified as Ayda Gezgin, is dragged out from underneath the concrete on a stretcher.
Rescuers and volunteers weep with joy and shout: “God is great!”
The girl, whose screams for help had alerted rescuers, blinks in the sunlight and looks dazed as she is carried to the safety of a waiting ambulance.
Despite being without food or water for more than 90 hours, the little girl looks remarkably healthy and photos later showed her recovering in hospital with a doll under her arm.
She has some bruises but there are no signs of internal bleeding, local media reports.
Ahmet Çelik, a rescuer who was there when Ayda was found alive, told local media that it was an emotional moment.
He said: “When she saw us, she only wanted water and buttermilk. We talked from the first contact.”
The young girl was pinned down next to a sturdy dishwasher which is thought to have saved her life.
Izmir mayor Tunc Soyer tweeted: “We have witnessed a miracle in the 91st hour.
“Along with the great pain we have experienced, we have this joy as well.”
Nusret Aksoy, another rescuer from the scene, told local reporters he heard a child scream and then spotted an arm beneath the concrete.
Ayda waved at him to show that she was okay and gave her name, he said.
This comes after a teenager and a child were rescued from the rubble of an apartment block – Idil Sirin, 14, and Elif Perincek, three, both survived.
