Yagiz Ula, a newborn baby, was rescued from a collapsed building that resulted from the Turkey earthquake.
The quake, which struck on Monday morning and was the deadliest to hit the area since 1999, destroyed thousands of buildings, including many tower blocks and hospitals, and left thousands of people injured or homeless in Turkish and Syrian cities.
Following the terrible earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria, a baby was born beneath the ruins of her home. Her umbilical cord was still attached when rescuers pulled the miraculous baby from the debris.
Despite international assistance, the death toll is likely to rise further as rescue efforts are being hampered by freezing weather and numerous aftershocks.
