Teenage Boy Pulled Out from Quake Rubbles

ERCIS, Turkey (Oct. 28) – A teenage boy pulled out from the rubbles of a multi-storey building after five days of massive 7.3-magnitude earthquake struck eastern Turkey on Sunday.

Ferhat Tokay, a 13-year-old boy, is the latest survivor who was pulled out of the wreckage of a collapsed building unscratched after being trapped for 5 days of strong 7.3-magnitude earthquake struck eastern Turkey last Sunday.

Rescuers from Azerbaijan pulled teenage Tokay out of the rubble of a multi-storey building early on Friday. According to the uncle of Tokay; Ferhat used a rock in a desperate attempt to dig a hole and free himself from rubbles of the building where he was working in a shoe-shop on the ground floor of the Ercis when the quake hit on Sunday.

"With a rock, he tried to open up a hole," the uncle, Sahin Tokay, told NTV television hours after the rescue. "He thumped on walls to try to open up a space for him."

Ferhat used the shoes as pillow to sleep during his captivity under the wreckage and the small light coming through a tiny hole was all the indication of day/night for him, his uncle told further.
