Rescuers Continue To Find Survivors In Collapsed Building

SAVAR, Bangladesh (April 27, 2013)--Rescue workers pulled nearly 30 survivors out of the rubble of a collapsed building Saturday in Bangladesh where at least 348 people died and they vow to keep working despite fading hopes for those still buried.

Meanwhile, police have detained five people in connection with the collapse of the shoddily-constructed building that housed garment factories including the wife of the building owner, whose arrest is intended to force the fugitive owner to surrender.

Violent public protests continued sporadically.

A fire official said there are still more trapped survivors.

Rescuers passed bottles of water and small cylinders of oxygen up a ladder leaning against the side of the building to be given to possible survivors inside.

A military spokesman says more than 2,400 survivors have been accounted for.
