Rescues in Turkey offer moments of relief as quake death toll rises

Rescuers have pulled several earthquake survivors from the remnants of buildings, including some who spent more than 100 hours trapped under concrete, as the death toll in Turkey and Syria rose to more than 22,000. The survivors included six relatives who huddled in a small pocket under the rubble, a teenager who drank his own urine to survive and a four-year-old boy who was offered a jelly bean to calm him down as he was pulled out.
