Waiting for Fajr Prayer Saves Cameroonian Player from Death in Turkey Earthquake - (Tweet)  Cameroonian striker Kevin Sonny revealed the story of his survival from the earthquake that struck southern Turkey and northern Syria at dawn last Monday, pointing out that the main reason for his survival is waiting for dawn prayers that day.  In a lengthy interview with sports website Foot Mercato, Sony spoke about what happened to him in detail that "shocking" night, as described by the 24-year-old Cameroonian international, Sanad reported.  "I came home after the Hatayspor vs Kassim Pasha match last Sunday evening in which we won by a goal to nothing, and I was sitting with my relatives playing PlayStation until four or five o'clock in the morning Turkish time, and the ground began to shake, and at that time I asked them to calm down, and when the ceiling and walls began to fall we started to flee heading towards the stairs, and we only had time to take our passports and phones," Soni said.   "At first I wanted to jump out the window from the seventh floor of a 17-storey building, and I thought to myself if I jump from here I will break my foot and not play football anymore, so I went up the stairs and went outside," Sonny said.  Speaking about how he survived, the Cameroonian striker continued: "What happened to me is really miraculous, I am a Muslim and very committed, and what saved me was that I wanted to wait until 6:40 am for Fajr prayers that day, so I couldn't sleep."  "We were lucky enough to get out of the building before everything collapsed, it was a day when everything really changed, there were many dead, I saw people dying next to me, I'm shocked up to the moment, this is the thing that shocked me the most since I started playing football, I never thought I would ever fall for such a test," Sonny continued.
