A two-week-old baby girl has been pulled out alive from the rubble of an apartment block that collapsed in the Turkish earthquake.

The baby, who has been named as Azra Karaduman, was rescued along with her mother on Tuesday after hours of heavy digging.

The rescue came nearly 48 hours after the 7.2-magnitude earthquake toppled around 2,000 buildings in eastern Turkey. Azra’s grandmother was also pulled from the wreckage, reports said.
