Turkey Earthquake: Heartbreaking images and videos have emerged from Turkey and neighbouring Syria following a deadly 7.8 magnitude earthquake that left a trail of destruction in both countries, killing over 7,800 people and injuring thousands more. A moving photo of a girl protecting her little brother is going viral on social media as rescue teams race against the clock to save people trapped under the rubble.

The photograph depicts a young girl trapped beneath the rubble with her younger brother. While waiting to be rescued, the girl keeps her hand on her younger brother’s head to keep him safe. For over 17 hours, they had been trapped beneath the rubble of a collapsed building.

 

They were both praised for their bravery, with the girl viewed as a hero for her younger sibling. She was lying beneath the rubble, protecting her brother with her arms from the disaster.

“While under the rubble of her collapsed home, this beautiful 7-year-old Syrian girl has her hand over her little brother’s head to protect him. “Brave soul They both came out okay,” one user tweeted while sharing the images.

The photo was shared by United Nations representative Mohamad Safa on Twitter. “The 7-year-old girl who kept her hand on her little brother’s head to protect him while they were under the rubble for 17 hours has made it safely. I see no one sharing. If she were dead, everyone would share! Share positivity,” Safa tweeted.

Following the disaster, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan declared an emergency state in ten provinces. Residents in several damaged Turkish cities expressed outrage and despair at the authorities’ slow and inadequate response to the deadliest earthquake to strike Turkey since 1999.

The magnitude 7.8 quake on Monday, followed by an almost identical one hours later, toppled thousands of buildings in Turkey and northern Syria, including hospitals, schools, and apartment blocks, injured tens of thousands, and left countless people homeless.
