Baby born as earthquake rocks Turkey

A powerful earthquake shook the delivery room of a private hospital in Turkey’s Malatya, minutes after a baby was born. The quake struck as the midwife was cleaning the newborn. No injuries were reported. Speaking the day after the quake, a hospital doctor said that both the mother and baby were healthy. The 6.8 magnitude quake struck, killing 36 people in Elazig and four in the neighbouring province of Malatya, with more than 1,600 sustaining injuries. It was followed by more than 700 aftershocks.
