When the earthquake was over, I went outside and I hit the stairs at that time, I was hit in my chest. When I came out, I came across an injured soldier, while chatting with him, he said that his family came from Isparta and we first went to Isparta City Hospital with them, after I had my first treatment there, I came to Denizli.
