A powerful earthquake shook the western part of the Egan Islands on the 31st. It is reported to be 7.0 on the Richter scale.
The coastal city of Izmir was badly affected by the quake. The apartment collapsed like a deck of cards due to the terrible earthquake. Seawater also entered various parts of the city as tsunami waves. The quake affected more than 300 buildings. Many were trapped inside the rubble.
Subsequently, the country’s disaster relief team was involved in the rescue operation. More than 100 people have been killed so far in the quake. Still, many are being rescued alive during the rescue operation.
In this case, 91 hours (about 3 days) after the earthquake, a 3-year-old girl was rescued alive. The incident, in which the girl, identified as Aida Hisjin, was rescued alive 3 days after being trapped in the rubble, has caused resilience. Meanwhile, rescue efforts are in full swing as more people may be trapped in the rubble.
