Bangladesh garment worker dies 108 days after disaster
DHAKA (AFP) - A Bangladeshi garment worker who spent 108 days in a coma after being badly injured in one of the world's worst industrial disasters has died, officials said on Monday.
Mr Manwar Hossain, 22, was ironing clothes in one of the garment factories housed in the nine-storey building outside the Bangladeshi capital when it collapsed on April 24, killing more than 1,100 people.
Mr Hossain was among several thousand people pulled from the rubble at the time of the accident and taken to hospital.
"He was rushed here unconscious and died in a coma (last) Thursday," Zahidur Rahman, a director of the Enam Medical College and Hospital told AFP.
