There are some times when it is very difficult for photographers to press the camera button and take a photo. They were like that the moments noted in the accident in Turkey and Syria.

According to the latest report, over 5.000 people died in the earthquakes that hit these two countries. The official representative of AFAD, Orhan Tatar, stated at a press briefing that 20.426 people were injured, while 5.775 buildings were destroyed by the earthquake, after which 285 aftershocks occurred.

Search and rescue operations are being carried out in very cold temperatures, and in some cities are covered with snow, and people are there, sometimes with their bare hands, fighting to save every possible life.
