Survivor of a collapsed building, Reshma Begum lies down on a bed as she receives treatment at a hospital in Savar, near Dhaka, Bangladesh May 11. Begum was working in a factory on the second floor of Rana Plaza when the building began collapsing around her April 24. For 17 days, the 19-year-old seamstress lay trapped in a dark basement pocket beneath thousands of tons of wreckage as temperatures outside climbed and was finally rescued on Friday.
