Rescue workers on Thursday pulled out a man alive from the rubble more than 100 hours after an earthquake that killed more than 500 people in eastern Turkey, a Reuters witness said.

The man, who was rescued in the town of Ercis, the hardest hit by Sunday's 7.2 magnitude tremor, was whisked away in an ambulance to the cheers of onlookers who witnessed the rescue.
