Intact Benetton Shirt Miraculously Pulled From Bangladesh Rubble Weeks Later

DHAKA, BANGLADESH—Nearly three weeks after the tragic collapse of a factory building in Bangladesh, overjoyed representatives for the clothing company United Colors of Benetton announced Monday they had miraculously managed to pull a fully intact shirt from the wreckage. “We are thrilled and relieved to report the rescue of a men’s medium fuchsia short-sleeved shirt from the rubble of the Rana Plaza building,” a beaming Benetton spokesman said of the article of clothing from the company’s 2013 summer collection, which authorities believe survived the collapse of the eight-story building wedged in the spaces between two large cinder blocks. “We’re happy to report that, aside from a few smudges, the shirt is in excellent condition and only needs a slight washing before it can be shipped to retailers. We want to thank the brave rescue workers in Dhaka for never giving up hope of finding this precious shirt.” At press time, Benetton reported that the garment had been restored to its factory condition and would retail for $59.40.
