Football Fans Shower Pitch With Toys For Children Affected By Earthquake in Turkey, Syria

Thousands of soft toys were thrown onto the field by Besiktas’ supporters during their match against Fraport TAV Antalyaspor as a sign of sympathy for the children impacted by the earthquake that claimed over 50,000 lives in Turkey and Syria.

The Turkish league game between Besiktas and Antalyaspor on Sunday was called off after 4 minutes and 17 seconds in honour of the kids impacted by the tragic earthquake that struck Turkey’s southern region three weeks ago, according to Reuters.

On February 6, at 4 hours and 17 minutes (local time), a 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Turkey; as a result, the Besiktas vs. Antalyaspor match was suspended at 4 minutes and 17 seconds after it had begun.
