Bangladeshi woman found alive in collapsed building

more than two weeks after its collapse. It seems she had access to some water and some dried biscuits.

A woman has been pulled alive from the ruins of a garment factory complex in Bangladesh more than two weeks after it collapsed and killed over 1,000 people.

The miraculous rescue came shortly after emergency officials announced that the woman called Reshmi had been located under the rubble of the nine-storey Rana Plaza complex after crying out for help on Friday.

As we were clearing rubble, we called out if anyone was alive. Then we heard her saying 'please save me, please save me'.

A report on Bangladesh's Somoy TV said that she had been found sheltering in the ruins of a basement mosque.

Rescuers cheered loudly as she was carried to an army ambulance, managing a faint smile at the crowds who had gathered.
Rest of story here

sadly the death toll now stands at 1041.

Edit to add a photo of her here. She looks quite young.
