Death toll in Bangladesh collapse soars past 1,100
Savar (Bangladesh): Police say the death toll from the collapse of a garment factory building in Bangladesh has soared past 1,100 as recovery operations continue.
Doctors say a seamstress who was rescued 17 days after the eight-story building collapsed is recovering in a hospital, but is exhausted, panicked and dehydrated.
Her discovery in the rubble yesterday brought a boost to the rescue workers. By today, they had resumed their grim task and the death toll reached 1,115 in the world`s worst garment industry disaster.
"We will not leave the operation until the last dead body and living person is found," said Maj Gen Chowdhury Hasan Suhrawardy, the head of the local military units in charge of rescue operations.
