Valorant female player Gizem "Luie" Harmankaya for UnknownPros has died in Turkey in the earthquake. This was confirmed by her team on Twitter after over 36 hours of uncertainty about her fate.
The girl was reportedly trapped under rubble after the earthquake that happened on February 6. Dot Esports' journalist George Geddes covered the tragic case yesterday. Many esports personalities called for the rescue of Luie, but apparently, the situation wasn't addressed in time. There was no confirmation if she was alive at the moment.
Turkish fans mourn the girl and blame the authorities for her death.
She was left to die. Don't let any news report because of the earthquake. Gizem died because of their indifference. Sorry for your loss.
Let no one forget the begging of her family and people here for 3 days.
The earthquake took a death toll of more than 11,000 lives in Turkey and Syria, and 300,000 people were displaced, according to the latest reports. In esports, players like Fnatic Emir "Alfajer" Ali Beder and Engin "MAJ3R" Kupeli has been retweeting and reposting similar calls for help for the last few days. Known streamer Tyler "Trainwreck" Faraz Niknam promised to donate $150,000 to the rescuing organizations.
