The Turkish coastguard have rescued a baby who drifted out to sea off the coast of Ayvacik.

The 10-month-old girl was in an inflatable crib which was swept about a kilometre away from the shore.

Her parents had left Melda Ilgin in the crib, and were not aware of what had happened until other sunbathers at the beach warned them, according to state-run Anadolu news agency.
