A 14-day-old baby and her mother were flown to the Turkish capital of Ankara on Tuesday for further medical treatment. The baby, her mother and grandmother were rescued from the wreckage of an apartment building 48 hours after an earthquake struck.
They were brought out alive on stretchers to jubilant cries from onlookers, who were following the dramatic rescue in the pouring rain.
The baby’s father is still missing, and is presumably in the building’s rubble.
A medic said the baby was in stable condition.
"Our patient's baby is only 14 days old. Her mother fed her under the rubble for two days; therefore the baby's condition is stable. She is sleeping at the moment," the medic said.
Relatives said Azra’s survival was a miracle; her name means "purity" or "untouched" in Arabic.
Rescuers are battling to find survivors of the earthquake, which struck eastern Turkey and has killed more than 400 people.
According to officials, Sunday’s 7.2-magnitude quake death toll stands at 459; 1,352 people have been injured. These figures will probably rise, because many people are still missing and more than 2,262 buildings have collapsed.
