A 13-year-old boy was pulled from rubble of a collapsed building Friday, five days after an earthquake struck eastern Turkey.

He was taken to the hospital, reported The Nation.

The boy was identified as Ferhat Tokay and his uncle Sahin Tokay said he survived by drinking rainwater that trickled through the rubble, reported the Los Angeles Times.

As of Friday the death toll from the 7.2 magnitude quake was around 573, reported the Los Angeles Times. According to Turkish authorities over 2,500 were injured and thousands were left without a home.
