By Thursday, the death toll reached at least 194 people as rescuers continued to search for injured and missing, after a huge section of an eight-story building that housed several garment factories splintered into a pile of concrete.(AP Photo/Kevin Frayer)
Garment workers trapped in the rubble plead for help. Rescuers, some in hardhats and others wearing slippers, dig through the broken concrete. They fashion bolts of colorful cloth into makeshift stretchers to lift and carry hurt survivors and dead victims.
Thousands of relatives wail their grief and worry outside a collapsed building in Savar, Bangladesh, where more than 290 people were killed and 2,000 rescued.
It is the worst-ever disaster in Bangladesh’s $20 billion-a-year garment industry, which supplies global retailers but is notorious for its poor safety record.
