Bangladesh building collapse: Woman pulled alive from rubble 17 days later

DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) - Rescue workers in Bangladesh say they have found a survivor buried amid the wreckage of a garment factory building that collapsed 17 days ago.

Workers at the site had been clearing the rubble since the collapse April 24. More than 2,500 people were rescued in the immediate aftermath of the collapse.

Army officials ordered workers to stop clearing the site Friday as they tried to free a person they said might still be alive. A soldier at the scene said rescuers found a woman in the debris and she waved her hand.
