Turkish daily newspapers covered in Wednesday editions face transplant surgery, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's criticism about super final cup ceremony, and the accident in the construction site of a hydroelectric power plant.
All newspapers wrote the fourth face transplant surgery of Turkey which was performed by Prof. Omer Ozkan at Akdeniz University. The face and ears of 19-year-old Tevfik Yilmaz were transplanted to 34-year-old Turan Colak. Prof. Ozkan said that the surgery was very successful, adding, "it was beyond a transplant." The operation lasted for nine hours. The organs of Tevfik Yilmaz were donated to five people.
Another topic in the newspapers is Erdogan's criticisms about the incidents which broke out after the final game between Fenerbahce and Galatasaray soccer teams. Erdogan said that there were three results in football which were victory, defeat and tie, adding, "you shall bear the consequences of these three results. It is nonsense to present the cup to the champion in a locker room. It is nonsense to turn off the lights of the stadium during the cup ceremony. The ceremony should have been held honestly and bravely and in the middle of the stadium." Galatasaray became the champion of Turkey's premier football league Spor Toto Super League.
Newspapers also wrote the accident in hydroelectric power plant in the Black Sea province of Giresun's Dereli town. A land slide in the construction site of the power plant killed four workers, and severely injured another one. Dereli Mayor said that melting snow waters loosened the land which caused the slide.
