Joy, disbelief as relatives embrace rescued Bangladesh factory worker

DHAKA (Reuters) – As hope faded of finding any more survivors of Bangladesh’s factory collapse, Reshma Begum’s family cherished one modest prayer: that hers would be the next body to be excavated from the rubble so they could at least give her a decent burial.

Instead, Begum, 19, was brought back from the dead, hoisted on to a stretcher on Friday after rescuers saw her waving an aluminum curtain rail from a gap in the ruins where she had spent 17 days trapped in a lightless, tomb-like chamber.
