Earthquake recovery hampered by sheer scale of destruction in Turkey and Syria

Zuhair El Sayed, Syrian Earthquake Survivor (through translator):

I’m 5 right now, right? Five levels fell on top of us. We were calling out: “Civil defense, please help us. We are going to die.”

There was a man who heard us. They said they are going to rescue us in the morning. I was like, whoa. I was sleeping, sleeping, sleeping, and then I knew they were coming to take us out.
