Now, more than two weeks after that factory collapse in Bangladesh, the number of dead reaches another milestone. Government officials say the total number of people killed in the collapse is 1,127. The recovery operation is winding down and is expected to end by Tuesday. More than 2,400 people were pulled out of the rubble alive. And so far Monday, no bodies have been recovered. On Friday, rescue teams found a woman buried, but alive, in the debris. She survived for a two-and-a-half weeks in an air pocket. The owners of the building and the factories are under investigation over accusations they ordered workers to enter the premises on the day of the collapse despite cracks in the structure the day before.
