Aid workers rescued in Turkey quake

6 years ago24 views



Rescuers pull Japanese Doctor Atsushi Miyazaki from rubble in eastern Turkey - after the hotel he was staying in collapsed during a 5.7 magnitude earthquake Wednesday night.
Earlier, Japanese aid worker Miyuki Konnai was also pulled alive from the wreckage.
Konnai was rescued after almost six hours trapped under debris - conscious and talking with her rescuers.
Sixty-year-old Miyazaki received first aid before being transferred to a nearby hospital.
Their rescue comes just weeks after the two arrived in the town of Van on October 28, after an earlier quake killed at least 600 people.
Both came to help, but themselves became victims when their hotel collapsed.
Broadcasters reported that at least 100 people could still be trapped under the destroyed hotel.
