While a little girl and her little brother were recently rescued from the rubble, two new miracles were discovered this Friday, February 10.
10-day-old baby survived
90 hours after the earthquake, a 10-day-old baby and his mother were found alive. They were discovered under the ruins of a building that collapsed after the tremors in the locality of Samandag, in the province of Hatay. The baby was immediately wrapped in a thermal blanket when he was discovered and his mother was also cared for

Stranded for more than three days, it’s a real miracle that this baby and his mother are still alive.
Other miracles were discovered this Friday. In Diyarbakir, a woman and her son were rescued alive from being trapped under the rubble of a 10-storey building. A man, who was stuck for 101 hours, was also extracted from the ruins. It took rescuers 10 hours to free him from a concrete block.
Relentless work that has saved lives.
