The rescue has revived the hopes of rescue crews who are racing against time to locate surviving family members from the ruins of the particular house. Earlier today, Ukrainian rescuers pulled a woman alive from the ruins of a building in Haati, CNN Turk reported, 205 hours after the earthquake and another woman 202 hours later.
So far today, nine people have been pulled alive from the rubble, eight days after the deadly quake. Among those recovered alive today are 18-year-old Mohamed Kafer, 17-year-old Mohamed Jeninar and his 21-year-old brother Baki.
However, despite rescue teams continuing to pull civilians alive from the rubble, some crews are leaving the country as sub-zero temperatures reduce the already slim chance of survival.
