After being trapped in the wreckage of a building that had collapsed 52 hours earlier as a result of a devastating earthquake in southeast Turkey, a woman was found alive.

On Wednesday, images from the broadcaster NTV showed paramedics transporting a woman to an ambulance in the province of Kahramanmaraş, close to the Syrian border.

The 58-year-old was purportedly saved from a hotel that had collapsed. The province of Kahramanmaraş was hit hard by the earthquakes.

The quake was the strongest, which registered a magnitude -7.7 of and struck at 0117 GMT on Monday.


Another powerful quake, only slightly weaker at 7.5, hit around noon the same day.

Thousands died in Turkey and in neighboring Syria.

Some of the injured were being taken to the metropolis of Istanbul for treatment via Atatürk Airport, which has been closed for civil air traffic, the broadcaster reported.
