A devastating 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck Eastern Turkey on Sunday, destroying approximately 2,000 buildings and killing hundreds of people. Rescue workers are still searching for survivors and digging people out from under collapsed structures.

Amidst the sad news, there was one moment of hope when a two-week-old baby and her mother were both rescued, alive, from the wreckage of an apartment building.
