Dog rescued after 23 days under rubble from 7.8 earthquake in Turkey

A rescue team in Turkey successfully pulled a dog out from rubble 22 days after devastating earthquakes leveled buildings throughout southern Turkey and northern Syria and killed tens of thousands of people, the animal rescuers announced.

Video showed workers from Haytap, a Turkish animal rescue agency, clearing an opening for the dog, a Siberian Husky named Alex, through the rubble under a giant collapsed concrete slab and whistling tenderly to draw him out, according to Turkish news agency Anadolu

The dog’s owner called Haytap after he heard Alex’s barks coming from the rubble of a two-story building in Hatay province, the news agency said.

A dog was pulled alive from the rubble of a destroyed building in Turkey’s Hatay province weeks after devastating quakes hit the country.

“Surviving 22 days in that hole without eating or drinking anything is really a miracle,” Osman Polatsaid,the Haytap worker who pulled the dog out, told Anadolu.

Polatsaid told the outlet Alex had lost some weight, but was generally in good health.
