Mum and three children saved from rubble nearly 24 hours after earthquake

A mum and three of her children have been rescued from beneath the rubble of a collapsed building after an earthquake after nearly 24 hours.

Seher Perincek, 38, was pulled to safety by teams of rescuers in Turkey after a frantic search – but one of her children remains missing.

The incredible discovery was made following the tragic tremors in Izmir, which claimed 39 lives and injured more than 800.

Daughter Elzem Perincek said, the Daily Mail reports: “I’m fine, I was rescued because only one of my feet was pinned. That foot really hurt.”

The 7.0 earthquake struck in the Aegean Sea between the Turkish coast and the Greek island of Samos on Friday, levelling at least 20 buildings in the Turkish city.

Efforts are still underway to get the remaining child out of the wreckage.

Earlier footage showed another woman being rescued in Izmir after a frantic search for survivors.

Remarkable scenes show a crowd of people cheering and applauding as they appear to pull a woman out of the rubble alive.

The survivor appears to look dazed and covered in dust in the dramatic video, before rescuers hug her and help her away from the wreckage.

Incredible moment woman is pulled from rubble after Turkey earthquake

At least 70 people are reported to have been pulled from rubble in Izmir, one of the worst affected areas by the earthquake.

Neighbourhoods were deluged with surging seawater which swept debris inland and left fish stranded as it receded.

On the Greek island of Samos two teenagers, a boy and a girl, aged 15 and 17, were found dead in an area where a wall had collapsed.

Search and rescue operations continued at collapsed or damaged buildings in Izmir, Turkey’s Disaster and Emergency Management Presidency (AFAD) said.

Authorities were setting up tents with a total capacity of 2,000 people near areas with the highest damage, Urbanisation Minister Murat Kurum said.

Ilke Cide, a doctoral student who was in Izmir’s Guzelbahce region during the earthquake, said he went inland after waters rose following the earthquake.

“I am very used to earthquakes … so I didn’t take it very seriously at first but this time it was really scary,” he said, adding the earthquake had lasted for at least 25-30 seconds.

Idil Gungor, who runs a hotel in Izmir’s Seferihisar district, told broadcaster NTV that people were cleaning the debris after the floodwaters receded.
