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

Ercise, Turkey - Two teachers and a college student were rescued on Wednesday from ruined buildings in eastern Turkey, three days after the devastating earthquake, but teams looking for survivors said that the hopes of finding anyone alive quickly fade.

The NTV television said the professor Seniya Erdem, 25 years old, was pulled from the rubble at the same time as other workers rescued another teacher. She was thirsty and asked for her husband, but he knew he was dead.

Earlier, rescuers said they had rescued a university 18 years more than 60 hours after the devastating earthquake.

Rescuers used tiny cameras placed on poles to locate Eyup Erdem and broke into applause as the young man left -61 hours after the quake, from the rubble of a multistory building in the city of ercise, which was the rout by the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that struck on Sunday.

The state agency Anatolia reported that Erdem was unharmed and being treated in a hospital to the site. The student had moved to Erciş a month ago to study mechanics at the university.

Equipment digging with heavy equipment began clearing the rubble of collapsed buildings in some ercise after officials determined there were no survivors. The 7.2 magnitude earthquake on Sunday has left at least 461 dead and over 1,350 wounded.

Anatolia reported separately that Gozde Bahar, an English teacher, was rescued only with wounds of a building 67 hours after the quake. The agency said that his heart stopped beating when he was being treated by doctors, but that they could revive it.

A Health Ministry official, Seraceddin Com, said 40 people were pulled alive from the rubble on Tuesday.

One of those rescued on Tuesday, 48 hours after the quake, was a two-week old baby who was born in the rubble of an apartment building. His mother and grandmother were saved, but his father was gone.

Moreover, health authorities said Wednesday they have detected an increase in cases of diarrhea, especially among children and asked the survivors to drink bottled water until authorities can determine whether the tap water may be contaminated.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Wednesday that the low quality construction contributed to the high number of victims buried in the midst of numerous buildings that collapsed in the earthquake.

The president said that Turkey has not heard in other earthquakes on many buildings destroyed.Compared the action of irresponsible builders murder.

The "concrete sand almost became" stressed the Prime Minister referring to the destruction caused by the earthquake.
