Miracle in Dhaka?



http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-22477414


Quote:
A woman has been pulled alive from the ruins of an eight-storey building that collapsed in a suburb of Bangladesh's capital, Dhaka, 17 days ago.

Rescuers said the woman, named Reshma, was found in the remains of the second floor of the Rana Plaza after they heard her crying: "Please save me."

She has been taken to hospital, but is not thought to have serious injuries.

More than 1,000 are now confirmed to have died, most of them women working in clothes factories.

The authorities said 2,437 people had been rescued, of whom about 1,000 had suffered serious injuries.

It is remarkable that the woman had food she ate for twelve days (I don't know if it was really a twelve day supply, or if she rationed herself) and water for even longer.

I would have thought that, when she banged on things to attract notice, someone with listening equipment would have heard her.
