Toll in Bangladesh building collapse passes 300

SAVAR, Bangladesh (AP) — More than two days after their factory collapsed on them, at least some garment workers were still alive in the corpse-littered debris today, pinned beneath tons of mangled metal and concrete. Rescue crews struggled to save them, knowing they probably had just a few hours left to live, as desperate relatives clashed with police in their anger and grief. Amid the chaos, the cries for help and the smell of decaying bodies at the eight-story building where more than 300 died, what happened to 18-year-old Mussamat Anna passes as luck. Rescue workers cut off the garment worker’s mangled right hand to pull her free from the debris Thursday night.
