Can my PC recover a HDD from a Mac Book Pro?

My cousin spilled liquid onto her mac book pro (2013 model) killing it and asked me for help on recovering her hard drive. I saw a couple of videos online and it looks like a standard HDD. I know I have the space in my computer to read it but I'm not sure if it will just look like a jumble of files or if I'll be able to actually look through it and recover the files she needs.

Is this possible? Trying to save her $900 from taking it to apple for recovery.

    Mac uses linux , if your PC is using linux it should work , if your PC is using windows I don't think it will.

  2. There are free software for windows like HFSExplorer that can read hfs/+ but you can't write to it. The ones that can write are pay but you won't need it to just get the files off. There isn't anything for apfs yet.
