A 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit southeastern Turkey and northern Syria early Monday, toppling hundreds of buildings and reportedly killing more than 1,300 people. Meanwhile, as the world expresses grief over the sudden incident, the internet has become a den of chilling visuals recording the earthquake on camera.

Of the many videos and pictures being shared on Twitter and being attributed to the recent Turkey earthquake, a video showing a tower crashing down to pieces has gone viral with a fake claim.

A video claiming to capture the catastrophic earthquake that hit Turkey showed a tower turning ashes in a dramatic fall. However, the footage is not manufactured but the claim is misleading for it comes from Florida and not Turkey.

WATCH VIDEO:

The video of the building's collapse was tweeted with hashtags relevant to the recent quake in Turkey. Multiple users rolled out the footage on Twitter with the fake claim. However, alert netizens noted that the collapse was a recording from Florida and that it showed a condominium collapse in Sunny Isles.
