Fact Check: Heart-wrenching picture going viral after Turkey earthquakes, Know what's the truth

About 5,000 people have lost their lives in Turkey and neighboring Syria earthquake after a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit on Monday (February 6) morning. After the devastation caused by the earthquake, heartbreaking videos and photos started appearing on social media. Photos and videos are also telling about the damage caused by powerful earthquakes. Hundreds of buildings have fallen to the ground. Many trees have been uprooted. Hundreds of people are still buried under the debris. Their families are searching for the survivors.

Meanwhile, the most poignant picture of a dog is becoming increasingly viral on social media, in which a dog is seen trying to save its owner from the debris after the earthquake. The image has been shared by hundreds of people on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. In the viral picture, a dog can also be seen wearing a black collar. Along with this, a hand is seen coming out of the debris. Many on social media called it the "saddest picture" on the internet and claimed that the picture was from Izmir, Turkey after the earthquake.

What is the truth of the picture?: However, this picture is not being told recently. This poignant photo is not of the devastating earthquake in Turkey on February 6. Actually, this picture surfaced online for the first time in 2018. According to a fact-check conducted by Newstracklive, the picture has been posted on Alamy, a service that sells stock photos. According to the Alamy listing, this photo is being reported from October 18, 2018. However, it is not clear where this picture was taken. Therefore, the claim being made on social media that this picture was taken in Turkey on Monday is also misleading. This is an old picture, which was taken in 2018.
