Watch: Survivors pulled from rubble after devastating earthquake in Turkey and Syria

Rescuers have searched through the frigid night, hoping to pull more survivors from the rubble after a 7.8 magnitude earthquake killed thousands of people and toppled thousands of buildings between Turkey and Syria.

Authorities fear the death toll will keep rising from Monday’s pre-dawn earthquake. There have also been concerns aftershocks could keep climbing as rescuers look for survivors among tangles of metal and concrete spread across the region from Syria’s 12-year civil war and refugee crisis.

In Adiyaman, workers have carefully pulled away slabs of concrete and reached for bodies as desperate families wait for news of loved ones.
