A Ukrainian woman and her 4-year-old son have been pulled from under rubble in Turkey, where one of the strongest earthquakes in recent years occurred on Feb. 6, the news outlet CNN Turk reported on Feb. 10.
"The search and rescue team of Istanbul's Uskudar Municipality managed to save a Ukrainian woman and her 4-year-old son," the message reads.
