Earthquake rescues: Dogs pulled from rubble in Turkey | USA TODAY

Crews have described some animal rescues as miracles after a massive 7.8 earthquake devastated parts of Turkey and Syria.


Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the death toll in Turkey from last week’s earthquake increased to 35,418; Syrian officials have said at least 5,800 have died there.

Rescue worker Salam Aldeen spent a week digging through the rubble in Antakya, Turkey, about 40 miles south of the coastal city of Iskenderun in a region of about 500,000 people.
