Syria-Turkey earthquake: Entire family rescued from rubble of home in Syria amid search for survivors

As crews search for survivors in the remnants of a massive 7.8 earthquake that claimed thousands of lives in Turkey and Syria, morale rose when an entire family was rescued from under the rubble.

According to the Syrian Civil Defence, also known as the White Helmets, the family was pulled from under their destroyed house in the village of Bisnia, west of Idlib, on Tuesday.

An ABC cameraman captured the moment several children and at least one adult were rescued, prompting roars of delight from the crowds surrounding the site.

They were then all put into an ambulance.

The death toll from the earthquake that struck earlier this week has soared above 7,200 and is expected to rise further.
