DHAKA, Bangladesh (KNOE 8 News) - For 17 days a woman was able to survive, buried in the rubble of a collapsed garment factory building in Bangladesh.

Rescuers pulled the woman out Friday after using handsaws and welding and drilling equipment to cut through iron and debris.

The woman had been in the basement of the eight-story building, trapped in a Muslim prayer room. She appears to be in good shape.
