Teachers saved from rubble after 66 hours - Hurriyet Daily News
Rescuers plucked a 27-year-old woman from the wreckage in eastern Turkey, 66 hours after a devastating earthquake that killed at least 459 people, TV reports said.
Gözde Bahar was a teacher in Ercis town in Van province, worst hit by Sunday's quake, the reports said. "She was our tenant. They pulled her out an hour ago," Akif Göltaş, another quake survivor, told AFP, after Nehar was rushed to hospital in Erciş.
A television report says Turkish rescuers have pulled a 25-year old school teacher out of a ruined building three days after a devastating earthquake that struck eastern Turkey.
NTV television said Seniye Erdem was pulled out on Wednesday around the same time that rescue workers also freed Gözde Bahar.
The report said the woman told rescuers she was thirsty and asked about her husband who had died.
A major earthquake of 7.2 magnitude hit Van province of eastern Turkey recently, claiming the lives of over 400 people.
