Four-year-old quake survivor waves from hospital bed

Rescuers heard Ayda Gezgin's screams from under the rubble and managed to free her hours later, taking her out on a stretcher as emergency teams continued to search five destroyed apartment blocks for survivors.

Video obtained by Reuters showed one of the rescuers talking to the child who was still stranded under the rubble to keep her awake.

The Interior Ministry later said that Ayda's mother was found dead by rescuers shortly after the child's rescue.

Deputy Health Minister Muhammet Guven told reporters at the hospital where Ayda was taken that she was in good health and receiving treatment.

Friday's earthquake in the Aegean Sea was the deadliest to hit Turkey in nearly a decade, with 111 people killed in Izmir and two teenagers on the Greek island of Samos, according to Turkey's Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD)
