After discovering the cash under the collapsed building, the rescue team documented it using their mobile phones before placing it in a black bag. Following this, the bundles of money were given to the police, as reported by Turkish media outlets.
In the aftermath of the earthquake that struck eastern Turkiye last week, a rescue team has made a stunning discovery. Amid the rubble, the team found $2 million in cash buried under a collapsed building.
The discovery was made by a rescue team in the city of Gaziantep, which was one of the hardest hit by the 6.8 magnitude earthquake. The cash was found buried under the wreckage of a four-story building that had collapsed during the quake.
According to local media reports, the building was believed to be the home of a wealthy businessman, and the cash was likely being kept in a safe. The discovery has led to speculation that there may be more hidden caches of cash in the area.
