(AP) – Rescuers in the Turkish coastal city of Izmir have pulled a young girl out alive from the rubble of a collapsed apartment building four days after a strong earthquake hit Turkey and Greece.

The girl – identified by officials as 3-year-old Ayda Gezgin – was seen being taken into an ambulance on Tuesday, wrapped in a thermal blanket, amid the sounds of cheers and applause from rescue workers.

The death toll in the earthquake reached 111, after rescuers retrieved more bodies elsewhere. The U.S. Geological Survey registered the quake’s magnitude at 7.0, though other agencies recorded it as less severe.
