A newborn baby and his mother were rescued from the rubble in Turkey about 90 hours after the first earthquake destroyed their home on Monday. Newborn baby and mother survive four days in house destroyed by an earthquake
Local newspapers say that this is a “miracle” because now the chances of finding people breathing have decreased, due to the extreme cold four days after the earthquake.
At least 23,000 people have died after two powerful earthquakes hit southern Turkey and northern Syria on Monday.
Only rescue operations and search for these survivors are ongoing in both countries.
Yagiz was photographed wrapped in heating blankets as he raced to an ambulance to be treated.
His mother was also put on a rope and put in the car. No further information was immediately released on their names.
The mayor of Istanbul, Ekrem Imamoglu – whose groups were involved in the rescue – announced on Twitter that this happened in the city of Samandag.
When the baby was taken from its mother, footage obtained by Reuters shows another man breathing heavily, but it is unclear if he is related to them.
These two earthquakes destroyed apartment buildings where people lived, some families lost all their members, while others survived.
The opposition accuses Erdogan of failing to prepare for the disaster and questions how the 4.6 billion dollars “earthquake tax” budget was spent.
This tax was established in 1999 after the great earthquake that killed more than 17,000 people – it was determined that the money would go to the prevention and preparedness of the disasters that develop the relief agencies.
Despite all the dangerous events, stories of great rescue and bravery in the rescue have continued to be published in recent days.
Many countries around the world have sent support and teams of rescue experts to critical areas.

Cuba, on Friday night, sent a group of “white coat troops” to Turkey and Syria to help rescue those in danger.
Cuba always sends these aid workers to places of disasters and epidemics in different parts of the world.
Its doctors were on the frontlines of the relief battle when Haiti was hit by an earthquake, and when Ebola ravaged West Africa in the 2010s.
