European and world champion Riza Kayaalp, who was in Hatay with the Turkish Religious Foundation (TDV) teams, supported the work.

In the video prepared by the Presidency of Religious Affairs and TDV, Riza Kayaalp, speaking in front of the wreckage of the Hatay Mufti Building, which was destroyed in the earthquake, said that he called out to the teams “after hearing human voices from the wreckage”.

“We dug the body of one of our sisters and our other sister alive”

In the subtitle of the video, in which he was seen during the rescue efforts with the TDV teams, the following statements of the national wrestler were included:

“We listened to the voice of a citizen who asked for our support, and finally we succeeded in exhuming the body of our sister, who could not be reached for 3 days.

We also witnessed and supported good things. Supporting AFAD, AKUT, special forces and NGOs, we rescued one of our sisters and carried them with our hands. Kindness suits this nation very well.”
