Rescuers have pulled out a 19-year-old alive from the rubble of a collapsed building four days after a powerful earthquake hit eastern Turkey.

Television footage on Thursday showed rescue workers freeing the teenager who looked exhausted. He is the first to be pulled out alive since rescuers evacuated a university student and two teachers on Wednesday.

His name is Muhammed, Hürriyet reported.

Rain and snow are compounding difficulties for the thousands rendered homeless in the earthquake that killed 523 people and shattered over 2,200 buildings.

Turkish authorities are delivering more tents Thursday and admit initial problems distributing aid.
