Dog Rescued from Rubble in Turkey After the Earthquake

The video of the dog being rescued from the rubble has been widely shared on social media and is now winning hearts.

HATAY, Turkey – Rescuers in Hatay, Turkey, successfully pulled a small dog from the rubble of a collapsed building after a deadly earthquake destroyed the area earlier this month, and the whole rescue was caught on camera.

On Feb 8, the video, recorded by Gurcan Ozturk, shows the dog, named Pambuk, taking sips of water while it waited patiently to be freed from the rubble by rescuers.

Watch the video here:

According to an Instagram post, Pambuk’s owner had been in intensive care in a nearby hospital following the catastrophic earthquakes. Ozturk told Storyful that the family of the dog had contacted him.

According to reports, more than 46,000 people were killed when the earthquakes struck Turkey and Syria two weeks ago. Most of those deaths have been reported in Turkey.

The death toll continues to rise in Turkey and Syria nearly two weeks after the series of catastrophic earthquakes, making this the deadliest disaster in modern Turkish history.

The first earthquake, a magnitude 7.8, struck the region on Feb. 6 at 4:17 a.m. local time (8:17 p.m. EST Feb. 5). That was almost immediately followed by a strong 6.7 magnitude aftershock, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

Nine hours later, a strong 7.5 magnitude aftershock struck the region– just one of the thousands of aftershocks of varying magnitude that have been shaking the area for weeks.
