Turkish woman rescued from rubbles after 222 hours

A 42-year-old woman has been rescued from the rubble of a building in the southern Turkish city of Kahramanmaras, where she was trapped for almost 222 hours.

Videos showed rescue workers carrying the woman, identified as Melike Imamoglu, strapped on a stretcher to a nearby ambulance.

Kahramanmaras is close the to the epicentre of last week’s earthquakes.

Meanwhile, the death toll from the Turkey-Syria earthquakes has crossed 41,000.

Turkish authorities say 35,418 people have been killed in the country. The Syrian government and the UN say more than 5,800 people died in Syria.

A rescue team in Turkey’s Adiyaman pulled out another woman who is 77-year-old from under the rubble, 212 hours after last week’s earthquakes and aftershocks.
