Turkey earthquake - girl survives 10 days under quake rubble

A teenage girl has been rescued 248 hours after last week’s devastating earthquake in Turkey.

17-year-old Aleyna Olmez was pulled from the rubble in Kahramanmaraş, a southern city near the epicenter.

Her uncle tearfully told rescuers “we will never forget you”, as he hugged them one by one.

Aleyna survived, injured and in freezing weather conditions, for 10 days. But rescues like hers are becoming increasingly rare.
