Turkey-Syria earthquake: Volunteers digging with their bare hands as shouts heard amid the rubble | World News

When we arrived in Antakya near the Syrian border, we were met with a pretty grim scene.

We’ve driven maybe 50 or 60 kilometres all the way along that road from Adana airport.

Virtually every building here has been affected in some way. There are damaged buildings all around me.

Adana airport is full of people who have travelled to help with the rescue effort

In the wreckage of an eight-storey residential building, a few volunteers are trying to use pickaxes and their bare hands to take out rubble.

In another building they are hearing voices. Every now and again they tell us to be quiet so they can use their small drills – that’s all they’ve got – to try and drill down.

They’ve already taken out at least four corpses this morning and they’re shouting now saying that they’ve heard people beneath.
