Meanwhile, rescue workers were searching for life buried in the pile of debris and many more survivors were pulled out today. In the Turkish city of Antakya, a large number of people ran in front of a truck distributing baby coats and other items to help. Emergency crews working overnight in Antakya city rescued a girl named Hajal Guner from the ruins of a building and the girl’s father Soner Guner, news agency IHA reported.

As Soner was being taken away in an ambulance, the rescue team told him that his daughter was alive and they were taking her to the same field hospital for treatment. “I love you all,” Soner told the rescuers in a very weak voice.

Three people next to the woman, however, were found dead in the debris.

In Antakya, a woman named Serp Arslan was found looking with moist eyes at the rubble of the building under which her mother and brother are buried. Serp said that the system has started work from Wednesday to remove heavy debris here.
