Survivor found in Bangladesh building collapse rubble

Bangladeshi rescuers have found a woman survivor in the rubble of a garment factory complex which collapsed and killed more than 1,000 people on April 24, the country's fire service chief told AFP news agency. One of the rescuers said that the woman had cried out for help as recovery teams sifted through the wreckage more than 16 days after the nine-storey Rana Plaza complex collapsed on the outskirts of the capital Dhaka. "As we were clearing rubble, we called out if anyone was alive," the unnamed rescuer told the private Somoy TV channel. Army officials ordered workers to stop clearing the site Friday as they tried to free a person they said might still be alive. More than 2,500 people were rescued in the immediate aftermath of the building collapse.
