More people rescued from rubble following Turkey earthquake

ERCIS, Turkey (AP) - The state-run news agency says a 27-year-old school teacher has been pulled out of a ruined building some 67 hours after a devastating earthquake struck eastern Turkey.

Anatolia says the English-language teacher, Gozde Bahar, was freed from the wreck with injuries on Wednesday. It said her heart stopped at a field hospital but doctors managed to revive her.

Hours earlier, rescuers also pulled out an 18-year old university student.

The magnitude-7.2 quake struck eastern Turkey on Sunday afternoon, killing at least 459 people.
