Volkan Demirel, the legendary football goalkeeper of Turkey, went live on social media amid the devastating earthquake. Demirel, who is otherwise the coach of Hatayspor, announced through Instagram and asked for help for the residents of the devastating earthquake that claimed at least 1.300 lives.

Demirel is in Turkey's southernmost city along the border with Syria, Hatay, which was closest to the epicenter.

- Here everyone is desperate, in Hatay everyone is dying. Please, the situation is very bad. We can't reach people. They need help, God, help - the appeal for help of the legend of Fenerbahçe is reported by the Turkish media.

Then he started crying and through tears he said.

– Help! Send all the resources you have. It's not just Hatay and Antakya. Please, in the name of God, people are dying here - are Demirel's words.
