ERCIS, Turkey (AP) — Turkish rescue teams are still looking for survivors at four collapsed buildings six days after a powerful earthquake.
Authorities on Saturday said the death toll in the 7.2-magnitude earthquake is now 582. They said 455 of them died in the hardest-hit city of Ercis in eastern Turkey.
Searchers on Saturday pulled the body of a 27-year-old teacher from a crumbled building and continued drilling through the wreckage in search of two other missing people.
A mother was waiting outside wailing for her son, another teacher, believed to be trapped inside, as hopes of finding more survivors were dimming.
