A Turkish basketball player Nilay Aydogan has been found dead among the rubble of collapsed buildings following last Monday’s earthquake in Turkey.
The country’s sport federation made the announcement on Monday, according to Newsmen.
Aydogan, who was 30-year-old woman until her demise played for Turkish Super League side Cankaya University.
The basketball player and her grandmother were found dead among the rubble, with the search continuing in hundreds of Turkish and northern Syrian settlements to try and find people still alive.
Aydogan played for a number of teams across her career in Turkey, including Osmaniye, Yalova and Mersin in the Turkish second division.
