A wonderful rescue in Bangladesh. Under the ruins of the collapsed 17 days ago, buildings found a surviving woman


At noon on May 10 in the suburb of the Bangladesh capital city of Dhaka, during a rescue operation at the site of the Rana Plaza building that collapsed on April 24, they found a living woman. She spent under the rubble for about 17 days.

Rescuers saw Reshma, reaching the basement. She was in the basement, in the former prayer room.

A wonderful rescue in Bangladesh. Under the ruins of the collapsed 17 days ago, buildings found a surviving womanDuring the rescue by the miracle of the surviving girl, over the platform were heard the words of a prayer, which one of the rescuers read into a megaphone. His colleagues, meanwhile, carefully dismantled the wreckage of the building.

Finally Reshm managed to get out. Her condition was surprisingly good. She even could move herself. Now the woman is in a military hospital for examination.

The girl managed to survive due to a happy coincidence: she was not injured and was in a fairly large space where there was water and even some food.

Reshma told journalists that she spent her resources economically, and when she heard the work of rescuers, she tried to call for help.

Survivors in the suburb of Dhaka were found earlier - more than 2.5 thousand people were saved. But it was mainly in the first days after the catastrophe: the last (before the miraculous rescue of Reschmi) the survivor was found on May 28, but could not be saved because of the fire. Then, the number of victims grew inexorably: according to the latest data, 1,035 people are considered dead.

By early May, the operation had virtually ceased to be rescue. Not expecting to find more living people, experts began to use heavy equipment to clear the rubble.

But the management convinced the staff not to panic and return to the building.

On April 24, after switching on the previously disconnected electricity, four powerful generators simultaneously started working (also installed without observing safety regulations). Their vibrations coincided in frequency with the vibrations of numerous sewing machines, which led to an increase in the amplitude of oscillations (resonance phenomena) and the destruction of a building.

After the investigation, other details of the terrible negligence were also clarified: the poor quality of the materials used, the “extra” three floors, built on top of the project, etc.
