Dhaka, (Daily Star]:

Miraculous as it may sound, a woman has been rescued alive, almost unhurt, from inside the rubble of Rana Plaza Friday afternoon, the 17th day into the country’s worst collapse building.

Named Reshmi, the woman, who was found alive in the basement of the now flattened nine-storey building, was pulled out at 4:25pm.

Rescuers have given her water and biscuit, stopping use of any heavy machines to make sure that the survivor is not hurt anyway.

An ambulance has been kept waiting near the site to whisk her to hospital on her rescue.

Almost 408 hours into the collapse, a rescuer heard Reshma groaning around 3:15pm.

According to rescuers, they were preparing to break a large slab when the miracle happened.

“As we made an announcement before starting to break the slab asking whether there was anyone alive in there, we heard someone groan,” said a rescuer whose name could not be learnt immediately.

As they jubilant rescuers inquired about her condition, she said she was not much hurt, said the rescuers.

“Reshma,” she replied in a feeble voice, as they asked her name.
