Despite the devastation, miraculous tales of survival in the midst of despair and destruction in the Turkey-Syria Earthquake have brought a sense of relief and joy to everyone.

Meanwhile, a two-month-old baby was rescued miraculously from under the rubble after over 128 hours. The crowd erupted in joy after the baby was pulled out from the debris in the heart-wrenching rescue operation.

With little bit of bruises, the child is doing fine and has been admitted to a hospital. A few days back, a newborn baby with its umbilical cord tied to its dead mother was also rescued safely from under the rubble. She has been named Aya- meaning miracle in Arabic.

Similarly, a little boy, who was rescued from under the rubble, was overjoyed and started playing with the rescue team. A video of the incident had earlier gone viral on social media platforms.

Similarly, a newborn baby and his mother were rescued almost 90 hours after the first of Turkey’s deadly earthquakes. The 10-day-old baby was retrieved from a ruined structure. He was then wrapped in a thermal blanket and taken to the hospital for treatment. His mother was also brought out alive and admitted to the hospital.

The hopes of finding more survivors are diminishing amid freezing cold conditions. However, several rescue teams are continuing with their efforts and scouring through flattened neighbourhoods in both Turkey and neighbouring Syria to save lives.

On the other hand, the death toll has risen to 28,000 with 6000 buildings collapsed under the aftershocks after the 7.8 magnitude earthquake.
