A video showing a building collapsing has been viewed thousands of times in social media posts that falsely claim it shows footage of an earthquake that hit Turkey and Syria on February 6, 2023. The earthquake has killed at least 7,800 people and several thousand buildings have been flattened. But the clip is in fact surveillance video footage of an apartment block collapse that killed 98 people in the US state of Florida on June 24, 2021.
