Turkey earthquake: Rescue team discovers $2m buried in rubble



Search and rescue team have discovered $2 million dollars buried under the rubble of one of the collapsed buildings in Turkey after the disastrous earthquake that rocked the region.

In a video that made the rounds on social media on Monday, the team were seen pulling the money from the ground and putting it into a bag, as they counted the cash.

The cash is suspected to belong to one of the victims of the earthquake.

The death toll from the quake that shook both nations stands at over 46,ooo lives lost, in what the Turkish President, Recep Erdogan, has described as “the disaster of the century.”

    The United Nations have continued to appeal for more funds to aid rescue missions with many international bodies and countries donating to Turkey and Syria.

    In the quake, Ghanian football player, Christian Atsu, was one of the victims that lost his life. His dead body was discovered after initial reports that the player had been rescued and his remains flown home to Ghana to be buried.

    The Ghanian earlier played in the Premier League for Chelsea, Everton and Newcastle before joining Turkish club, Hatayspor, last summer.
