SAVAR, Bangladesh (AP) - Doctors in Bangladesh say a seamstress who survived 17 days before being rescued from a collapsed garment factory building is in generally good shape -- though she's dehydrated and suffering from insomnia.
She's also still described as "panicked," and doctors say she holds tight to the hands of nurses.
The rescue of the 19-year-old woman yesterday gave a boost to workers who've spent more than two weeks pulling bodies from the rubble. The death toll has now topped 1,100.
