A NDRF team along with the Turkish Army rescued an 8-year-old girl who was stuck under the rubble of a building flattened by the massive earthquake in Nurdagi, Gaziantep in Turkey.

Video footage of the rescue operation was posted on social media where the NDRF personnel were seen retrieving the young girl alive from the rubble.

The rescue operation was undertaken in Gaziantep’s Nurdagi town along with Turkish army personnel, the NDRF spokesperson said.

Earlier, NDRF personnel rescued a 6-year-old girl from the same area.

“Rescuers have saved two lives and retrieved 13 bodies from the debris till now. The rescue operation of the force is continuing since February 7 in the affected areas of Turkiye,” the spokesperson said.


Around 130 international urban search-and-rescue teams are working in the earthquake-impacted area of Turkey. Another 57 international search-and-rescue teams are on their way, said Stephane Dujarric, spokesman for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, as per an IANS report.

India launched “Operation Dost” to extend assistance to Turkey as well as Syria following devastating earthquake that has killed over 24,000 people in the two countries thus far.

Three NDRF teams are deployed in Turkey for undertaking relief and rescue operations.
