    ANKARA (Sputnik) - A four-year-old girl was rescued from under the rubble of a destroyed building in Turkey's Izmir, almost four days after the devastating earthquake, Izmir Mayor Tunc Sawyer said on Tuesday.

    "There is news that excited everyone. Rescuers pulled a child alive," Sawyer said on Twitter.

    As the NTV channel reported, the four-year-old girl has been pulled from the rubble and is taken to the hospital in satisfactory condition.

    ​The Disaster and Emergency Management Authority reported that 102 people died in the earthquake, and 1,026 were injured, of whom 143 are still being treated in hospitals.

    A 6.6-magnitude quake toppled more than a dozen buildings in Izmir last Friday. The shock reached the Greek island of Samos in the Aegean Sea, killing two teenagers and injuring 20 people.
