Bangladesh Collapse Survivor Gives Up Garment Work

SAVAR, Bangladesh - A woman who spent 17 days trapped in the rubble of a collapsed factory building says she is finished with working in Bangladesh's garment industry.

Reshma Begum spoke to reporters Monday from the hospital where she is being treated in a Dhaka suburb. She said she never expected to be rescued alive.

Rescue workers were stunned when they discovered the 19-year-old seamstress Friday in the wreckage of the garment factory building. They said she survived on dried food and bottles of water.

Begum told reporters she will never again work in a garment factory.
