Rescue workers in Izmir, Turkey, reportedly pulled a 3-year-old girl out from under a collapsed apartment building where she had been trapped for 91 hours, according to multiple reports.
Rescue worker Nusret Aksoy told reporters he was searching through the remains of the eight-floor building when he heard a child scream, per Stars and Stripes. He reportedly uncovered her in a small space next to a household appliance described in different reports as a “washing machine” or “dishwasher.”
“I got goosebumps and my colleague Ahmet cried,” Aksoy told reporters, per the outlet. The girl was identified as Ayda Gezgin, and her rescue — recorded by cellphone — is being widely shared. Upon being discovered, she reportedly smiled and asked for her mother. Her mother was one of the people killed in the quake, as reported by CBS News.
