Rescue workers sifting through the rubble from a devastating earthquake in western Turkey pulled a 70-year-old man out alive on Sunday as the death toll rose to 53. The miracle survivor is named as Ahmet Citim and was taken to the hospital where he is expected to recover fully, Turkish media reported. The epicenter of Friday’s quake, which the U.S. Geological Survey registered at 7.0 magnitude, was in the Aegean Sea and produced a small tsunami that led to the drowning of several people. Damage was widespread, including nine buildings completely leveled in the Turkish city of Izmir and damage on the Greek island of Samos, where two teenagers were killed.
