Seventeen days after a Bangladesh garment factory collapsed, rescuers found a woman alive and pulled her from the rubble. The woman, who has been identified by local media as only Reshma, was reportedly found after a workman heard her faint cries of “Save me, save me” from beneath the debris.
As rescuers continue to clean up the rubble, the death toll from the building collapse has climbed above 1,000. Many relatives of garment workers remain at the site, carrying photos of family members they hope to locate.
