    A three-year-old girl has been rescued alive from a collapsed apartment building in Izmir, Turkey, following Friday’s devastating earthquake, according to reports by Turkish media on Tuesday morning, November 2.

    Dozens of people died and hundreds more were injured after the earthquake, measured as magnitude-7.0 by the US Geological Survey, struck in the Aegean Sea Friday, affecting parts of Greece and Turkey.

    More than 900 aftershocks have been registered since the initial quake, 42 of them with a magnitude over 4.0, according to reports by Turkey’s disaster agency.

    The child, identified by authorities as Elif Perincek, was rescued on Monday morning, more than 65 hours after the devastating earthquake struck. 

    The Turkish health minister Fahrettin Koca said Perincek’s mother and two others were rescued earlier, but one of her siblings had died.

    The earthquake also triggered what authorities called a “mini tsunami,” causing streets to flood Friday in parts of Turkey’s wider Izmir province, as well as on Samos.
