Pamuk drank water offered by rescuers as they tore away at the heavy debris left by the 7.8-magnitude tremor and powerful aftershocks.

The dog whines as the rescue continued, with some of those helping trying to calm the dog down by stroking it.

Once the pooch is freed, a high-vis clad man tenderly picks it up and carries it to safety.

The video shows several rescue workers removing debris and rubbles to get the dog out. One of them also tried giving some water to the animal that had been stuck under the rubble for several hours.
