Tough Miners Head Off To Disaster Zone To Dig For Survivors

As rescuers raced against time to pull people still alive from the rubble, Turkish miners are being sent to the disaster hit regions to help with the efforts.

This video shows a bunch of tough miners boarding a Turkish air force transport plane to take them to the city of Adıyaman which is one of those affected by the earthquake.

The footage was obtained by Newsflash from the Turkish Ministry of National defence which said it was shot on 7 February.
