Woman Rescued From Bangladesh Rubble

A seamstress buried in the wreckage of a collapsed garment factory building for 17 days was rescued Friday. Reshma survived by eating dried food that was in her area and drinking spare amounts of water with her. She was discovered on the second floor of the eight-story Rana Plaza building. "I heard voices of the rescue workers for the past several days. I kept hitting the wreckage with sticks and rods just to attract their attention," she told the private Somoy TV from her hospital bed as doctors and nurses milled about, giving her saline and checking her condition.
