ERCIS, Turkey (AP) — Rescuers have freed a woman hours after they also pulled out her 2-week-old baby girl alive from the rubble of an apartment building.
Television footage on Tuesday showed rescue workers carrying Semiha Karaduman out of the wreckage on a stretcher and moving her to an ambulance. The infant was pulled from the debris earlier.
Officials say the death toll in the 7.2-magnitude earthquake that struck eastern Turkey on Sunday is now 370. More than 2,000 buildings have collapsed.
Rescuers in two cities in eastern Turkey are struggling to pull out survivors from the wreckage.
