Workers in the Rana Plaza building said it had developed such severe cracks the day before that it had been reported on local news channels. They hesitated to enter the building this morning, said Abdur Rahim, who worked in a garment factory on the fifth floor. But a manager from the factory assured them there was no problem, so they went inside, he said. "We started working. After about an hour or so the building collapsed suddenly," he said. He next remembered regaining consciousness outside the building.
