Istanbul: Earthquake shook Turkey and Syria on Monday. Most of the people were sleeping as the earthquake struck early in the morning. Even though they were woken up by the earthquake, they did not get a chance to come out of the house. Most of the people have gone to eternal sleep under the collapsed houses. Those who were buried under the rubble, the light of survival is slowly fading. Because 72 hours have passed since the earthquake. The members of the rescue team are almost giving up hope that they can survive without water and food in the injured condition. However, the rescue work is not stopped because of this. According to the administration, more than 20,000 people have died in Turkey-Syria in Monday's terrible earthquake. The number of injured has reached 40,000.
India stands by the earthquake-ravaged Turkey and Syria. A special plane of the Indian Air Force has already arrived with relief supplies. The National Disaster Response Force is also carrying out rescue operations in the rubble. On Thursday, the first part of the aid sent by the United Nations reached Syria.
Although the rescue operation has been going on for the past four days, severe cold and rain have hindered the rescue operation. Those who survived the earthquake are now struggling to survive under the open sky with stomach hunger and extreme cold. The situation is so terrible that the common people are not getting food, even drinking water. Many have also lost the ability to reach the relief camp crossing the collapsed houses and cracked roads. Outside the hospitals, body bags are scattered everywhere, indicating the magnitude of the earthquake and the huge death toll.
According to the rescue team, as rescue work has become difficult due to severe cold in earthquake-ravaged Turkey and Syria, the chances of survival under the rubble have also decreased as 72 hours have passed after the earthquake. If one survives the earthquake, it is practically impossible to survive under the rubble for so many hours without food and water.
