Race to find survivors as Istanbul building collapse kills two

Race to find survivors as Istanbul building collapse kills two

The girl was the second child to be found in the rubble after the 9-year-old boy that was rescued earlier.

Surveillance camera footage of the moment of collapse which was shown on Turkish television showed people fleeing in terror as the building disintegrated, leaving a huge cloud of dust.

A residential building in Istanbul, Turkey suddenly collapsed and rescuers immediately rushed to site to look for survivors and treat the injured.

As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before.

Cevizli local headman Memiş Dikilitaş told Turkish broadcaster NTV that there was no explosion before the collapse, noting that the building, which was old, collapsed on its own.

Some companies sent the captured data to Glassbox, while others sent it to servers in their own domain, according to TechCrunch . Some of these apps properly mask that sensitive information before sending them off to remote servers.


However, Mr Kurum told reporters that some apartments had guests at the time of the collapse, without providing details. She was carried to a waiting ambulance on a stretcher with her neck in a brace, as one person in a crowd of onlookers chanted "God is great!"

Rescuers had initially put the death toll at two, but Istanbul governor Ali Yerlikaya said on Thursday the figure had leapt to 10 as more bodies were pulled from the rubble, state-run Anadolu news agency reported.

According to the Governor's office statement, rescue work continued on Thursday in search of survivors, though it was not specified how many people were still trapped under the debris.

Officials have said the building's top three floors were built illegally, although the cause of the collapse is still under investigation.

Yerlikaya also said there was a textile workshop on the ground floor that was operating without a license. "We have to bring them out as soon as possible", Yerlikaya said.
