The death toll from a building collapse in Bangladesh is now more than 1000 people. As crews continue to dig through the rubble, more bodies are pulled from the wreckage. The building, which housed several garment factories, collapsed last month with more than 3000 people inside. The collapse was believed to have been triggered when generators in the building were turned on during a blackout. The incident is being called the world's worst industrial accident since the Bhopal disaster in India in 1984.
