SAVAR, Bangladesh - Police say the death toll from the collapse of a garment factory building in Bangladesh has soared past 1,100 as recovery operations continue.
Doctors say a seamstress who was rescued 17 days after the eight-story building collapsed is recovering in a hospital, but is exhausted, panicked and dehydrated.
Her discovery in the rubble Friday brought a boost to the rescue workers. By Saturday, they had resumed their grim task and the death toll reached 1,115 in the world's worst garment industry disaster.
