Rescuers in Bangladesh succeeded in freeing 31 people from the rubble of a factory building the day after it collapsed, killing at least 258, as Dhaka city officials reported that the structure had been built without proper permits on unstable land.
My heart is aching. Please keep them all in your prayers.
Not only did this factory have no legal building permits, but workers who raised concerns about building cracks were not taken seriously. According to other reports, the businesses in the factory supplied products to huge American brands, including Dress Barn and The Children’s Place. As of yesterday, Wal-Mart was still “investigating” whether or not it also received supplies from the factory.
