Survivor Reshma Begum lies on a stretcher Friday after being pulled out from the rubble of a building that collapsed in Savar, near Dhaka, Bangladesh. Begum was working in a factory on the second floor of Rana Plaza when the building began collapsing around her April 24. She raced down a stairwell into the basement, where she became trapped near a Muslim prayer room in a wide pocket that allowed her to survive, she told the private Somoy TV.
