Teen boy rescued 36 hours after collapse of apartment building in Turkey

Workers early Tuesday rescued a 14-year-old boy alive 36 hours after the collapse of an eight-story apartment building that left five people dead in southeastern Turkey.

The workers evacuated Abdullah Koseer, 14, who was trapped on the ground floor of the building when it collapsed Sunday afternoon in the southeastern city of Diyarbakir, the AP reports.

Ilhami Dogangun, local chief of the rescue workers in Diyarbakir, said Koseer was hospitalized in good condition. Rescue workers pulled out the bodies of three more people Tuesday raising the death toll to five, local authorities said.

Authorities had evacuated the building in November against risk of collapse due to poor construction but some people apparently returned.
