Rescue worker spent 1,5 hours with İdil Şirin under the debris
Balıkesır Fire Department Search and Rescue Team Leader Bahadır Kuş who rescued İdil stated, “First of all, I wish quick recovery for İzmir and all of Turkey. We travelled to İzmir right after the earthquake. We were here at 18:00 and we never lost hope. Finally, we rescued İdil. We opened a tunnel under the debris after work for three hours. I spent one and a half hours with İdil under the debris. I talked to her in order to keep her awake. Now, health teams are dealing with İdil. We are all happy.”
