Turkish rescuers pull 2 more from quake rubble (EXCLUSIVE)!

ERCIS, Turkey (Oct. 26) – Three more people were pulled out from the wreckage of the collapsed buildings on Wednesday, after getting trapped under the rubble for almost 72 hours.

Three miraculous survivors include two teachers and a university student. Local TV channel NTV reported that two teachers Seniye Erdem, 25, and Gozde Bahar, 27, pulled out by rescuers from the debris of the buildings in Ercis, the worst hit town in the temblor.

When Seniye Erdem was pulled out she was hungry and thirsty but she asked about her husband who has reportedly become a victim of 7.3-magnitude earthquake.

Gozde Bahar was pulled out with severe injuries her tearful mother watched anxiously. The state-run Anatolia news agency said her heart stopped at a field hospital but doctors managed to revive her.

Earlier in the day, rescuers pulled out 18-year old university student Eyup Erdem, using tiny cameras mounted on sticks to locate him. They broke into applause as he emerged from the wreckage.

The 7.3-magnitude quake Sunday has killed at least 461 people and injured over 1,350.
