There were reports of people left wounded or trapped under the rubble.

The building, with 43 people living in 14 apartments, collapsed on Wednesday. "We have to bring them out as soon as possible", Yerlikaya said.

An eight-storey apartment block has collapsed in the Turkish city of Istanbul, killing one person, while other people were injured or are trapped beneath rubble.

Her miracle rescue came several hours after a nine-year-old boy was also safely removed from the debris. At least one person has died while three of those injured have been rescued.

Istanbul governor Ali Yerlikaya said that a license to build a five-story block was granted in 1992, however, three further stories have been added illegally since then.

Murat Kurum, the environment and urbanization minister, told reporters at the scene that some apartments had guests at the time of the collapse, without providing details. "We are continuing with our search and rescue efforts so that we can deliver good news (about survivors)".

Rescuers work at the site of the collapsed building in Istanbul's Kartal district, Turkey, February 6, 2019.

Security camera footage broadcast on HaberTurk television showed several people, including schoolchildren with backpacks, running away from the site as the building tumbled down and a cloud of dust engulfed the area about 4 pm.

The chairman for Turkey's Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) said search and rescue operations were underway, adding that additional personnel would be requested from neighbouring provinces if necessary.
