The state-run Anatolia agency said Ferhat Tokay was found injured among the remains of an apartment building in the town of Ercis, eastern Turkey, which was at the epicentre of the quake.

His rescue was captured on camera, with pictures from a field hospital, showing him conscious and looking at his rescuers.

The death from the Turkey earthquake, now stands at 570, but is expected to climb as emergency teams continue to scour through rubble for survivors.

Earlier, 18-year-old Imdat was found by rescuers searching for survivors in Ercis, which took the full brunt of Turkey’s 7.2-magnitude tremor.

His tale of survival, which has given hope to many who are still awaiting news of missing loved ones, follows reports that search and rescue efforts have been called off in the neighbouring town of Van.

It also comes just hours after a 19-year-old student called Mohammed was rescued nearby.

As well as the dead, a further 2,300 people have been injured as a result of Sunday’s earthquake.

Although hopes for finding more survivors are fading, there have been stories of ‘miracle’ rescues.

The Disaster and Emergency Administration said 185 people had now been rescued alive.

A 27-year-old woman was rescued on Wednesday after being trapped under rubble for almost three days.

Gozde Bahar spent 67 hours under a collapsed building before she was freed by emergency workers.

Doctors managed to revive the English language teacher after her heart stopped en route to hospital in the town of Ercis.

Just five hours earlier, 18-year-old student Michael Erdem was found with only minor injuries.

A newborn baby, just 14 days old, shocked emergency workers after being found to have survived 46 hours in the wreckage.

The little girl, named locally as Azra Karaduman, was quickly wrapped in a blanket and whisked away in an ambulance to the sound of overjoyed rescuers clapping.

Meanwhile, Turkish officials have said they will now accept foreign aid from neighbours, including Israel, with whom it has a strained relationship.

Ankara had initially said it could cope on its own but the urgent need for housing materials for those left homeless has forced it to reconsider.

The earthquake has frightened inmates of a prison in the Van region who fear they could be crushed in their cells following a big aftershock from the quake.

They, and their families outside, have broken out into rioting after authorities refused to transfer them to a safer area.

Smoke billowed into the sky and gunshots were heard after prisoners set fire to their blankets in protest and attacked guards with scissors and knives.

The disturbance was quickly contained, with soldiers brought in to restore order.
