A 10-year-old girl was found alive in the 90th hour since Turkiye's earthquake, according to a statement from the Antalya Metropolitan Fire Department on Thursday, APA reports.

The first thing she asked for after her rescue was milk, the statement said

Hilal Sağlam was trapped underneath the rubble of a building located in the Hatay province.

The rescue team "heard the sound from under the rubble" and were able to rescue Sağlam "as a result of a meticulous 7-hour work in the wreckage," the statement added.

"The injured girl, who was taken to the stretcher with great joy and applause, was sent to the hospital for treatment by ambulance," the fire department said.
