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.

Rain and snow are compounding difficulties for the thousands rendered homeless in the earthquake that killed 481 people and shattered over 2,200 buildings.
