woman-in-rubbleDHAKA, Bangladesh — Rescuers had drilled Friday to what had been the basement garage of the nine-story building that collapsed here last month only to find that it was filled with water and held no survivors, Lt. Col. Moazzem Hossain said Saturday.

But the disappointment did not last.

Perhaps alerted by the light, someone inside stuck a stick through the hole.

“When I was cutting iron rods, suddenly I found a silver-colored stick just moving from a hole, and I looked through and I saw someone calling, ‘Please save me,’ ” rescue worker Mohammad Rubel Rana told Reuters.

“Then instantly I called the army and firefighters and said, ‘Please look, I heard a sound.’ Then they saw her and confirmed that there was a woman.”
