Earthquake: Family Of Five Saved After 5 Days In

Rescue teams in Turkey have pulled to safety a family of five who survived inside their collapsed home for five days.

Rescuers first extricated mother and daughter Havva and Fatmagul Aslan from among a mound of debris in the town of Nurdag, in Gaziantep province, HaberTurk reported.

The teams later reached the father, Hasan Aslan, but he insisted that his other daughter, Zeynep, and son Saltik Bugra be saved first.

The dramatic rescue after 129 hours brings to at least nine the number of people rescued Saturday, despite diminishing hopes amid freezing temperatures.
