    After 17 days buried alive, Bangladesh seamstress pulled to safety

    The real challenge is in the days ahead, as her body adjusts to having food and water. Many people who have been starved, die when their bodies fail to adjust to food. Many concentraiton camp survivors died after receiving food after the Second World war. Many American revolutionary soldiers died after being released from Brittish prisons, after ill health from a starvation diet, in the 1700's.


    "DHAKA, Bangladesh – A seamstress buried in the wreckage of a collapsed garment factory building for 17 days was rescued Friday, a miraculous moment set against a scene of unimaginable horror, where the death toll shot past 1,000"

    I'm pretty sure the dumbasso herald or whatever doesn't qualify as MSM.

    And no one dies after simply having something to eat. They die from gorging themselves.

    It is horror in so many levels. First you cannot move a finger while there should be some pressure. Then if the pressure is too much it may block arteries and/or brink the bones to breaking point. You can endure pain in those (or more accounts) but not be able to move. On top of that there is persistent, relentless, and ever growing hunger and thirst! Yet you cannot move still!

    Among worst ways to die and yet we are all potentially under such a threat of earthquakes (since they can happen everywhere). Why wont engineers develop a frame from the strongest element ever that could give one space and increase the odds of survival should the entire building fall on top of them? This element should be rare, difficult to obtain, and thus expensive and thus only usable to surround one's bed (i.e., not build an entire building with it!).

    The coverage was on CNN.

    Hopefully the medical professionals in Bangladesh will monitor her recovery. If anyone might be concerned, it was my point that prayers or well wishes would still be appropriate for several more days, as Reshma recovers.


    In many socieities, it is customary to offer more food, as a means of showing good wishes, but for starvation survivors, even a moderate amount of food may be too much.

    i wish that we were doing more to ensure that overseas manufacturers treat their workers like humans, though. there was another factory fire this past week :

    There is apparently more to the story as to how two others died, who had survived the intial building collapse.

    "She survived on four packets of cookies she had with her and some water, she said.

    ''Another person, a man, was near me. He asked for water. I could not help him. He died. He screamed, 'Save me,' but he died," she said. ''I can't remember everything that happened."

    "Benetton has become the latest global retailer to agree to sign a one-of-a-kind pact to improve safety at Bangladesh factories following a building collapse that killed more than 1,100 workers in the country last month.


    The move, announced by Benetton today, comes after H&M, a trendy Swedish fashion chain that is the largest clothing buyer in Bangladesh, said Monday that it would sign the same five-year legally binding factory safety contract.


    Within hours, C&A of the Netherlands, British retailers Tesco and Primark, and Spain's Inditex, owner of Zara, followed. "
