    Tragedy of Rana Plaza

    On 24th April 2013 a building called Rana Plaza collapsed due to weak construction planning and because it held a lot of people even more than its capacity. This tower's owner Sohel Rana was always involved in illeagal activities and was very greedy.His permission for constructing the building was until the fourth floor but he violated the rules and built up to the tenth floor.

    On 22nd April a crack appeared and the building was closed by Police as it was very unsafe for people to work there; but still two days later the garments managers forced their workers to come and to work and also threatened and bribed them for money. Unfortunately the day they came, the building collapsed as it could no more take any load.

    Instantly 1,654 people died but the rest of the people were trapped and it was impossible for them to get out.1,500 were rescued but most of them were injured very badly and are in a paralized. Some of them had there legs or hands trapped under pillars and rods and so to get out from there some of them had to ampute their arms straight away.Some were discovered by people that they were trapped and so they were aided by proper food and water but after a certain time the rescue team lost all their hope and finally they cleared the place.

    The remaining people died as they were hopeless and sorry for them at the same time.Whatever is gone is gone but we should help the poor,helpless and injured people as charity.
