near the

border with Syria

, which has killed more than 5,100 people and injured hundreds of thousands to date, experienced a moment of hope when a

baby was born in the rubble .


The mother had been buried under the remains of a building in Syria that had been demolished by the quake when she was ready to give birth.

And the miracle occurred when she ended up giving birth to a little boy who

 emerged unharmed

from this natural catastrophe.

Why the earthquake in Turkey and Syria was devastating

The enormous number of

deaths and injuries, and the serious damage

caused by the earthquake that this Monday, February 6, devastated several towns in Turkey and Syria begins to find reasons.

of the earthquake, of 7.8 degrees,

the time it occurred

, the distant background and

the few rigorous security measures at the time of construction

help explain this deadly balance.


It is the strongest earthquake recorded in Turkey

since 1939, and hit a densely populated region.

Roger Musson, a researcher for the British Geological Survey, explained to the AFP agency that since it happened at dawn, at 4:17 local time, "he surprised the

population sleeping

and the

the vast majority of the victims "were trapped when their houses collapsed."

In turn, the construction methods "were not really adequate for an area prone to large earthquakes," added the specialist.

He also remarked that the fracture line where the seismic movement occurred had been relatively calm in recent times.

The region suffered another 7.5-magnitude tremor 7.5 hours later, confirming that a lot of power had built up that needed to be released.

On the other hand, the epicenter of the earthquake on Monday was relatively

shallow, just 17.9 kilometers

, and was located in the Turkish city of Gaziantep, where about two million people live.

Musson says that the epicenter is not as important in this case as the

extension of the telluric movement

, along 100 kilometers, something rare.

"This means that within that margin of 100 km along the fault, everything" suffers the consequences of the tremor," he told AFP.
