The two-month-old baby who was miraculously pulled out alive from the rubble after more than 128 hours of the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Turkey in February has been finally reunited with its mother.
It was thought at the time that the baby’s mother had died in the earthquake but she has now been found to be alive. The mother had been taken to another hospital for treatment of serious injuries suffered in the earthquake.
You probably remember this picture of the baby who spent 128 hours under rubble after an earthquake in Turkey. It was reported that the baby's mom died.
Turns out, the mom is alive! She was treated in a different hospital. After 54 days apart and a DNA test, they are together… pic.twitter.com/T7B0paUFxL
