Back in April, a garment factory collapsed in Bangladesh, killing over 1,000 people. And more than two weeks after the collapse, workers rescued a 19-year-old woman named Reshma Begum (pronounced "Bay-goom"). She had no serious injuries . . . despite spending 17 DAYS under the rubble.
She said she was able to do it because she'd skipped breakfast that morning, and was carrying some biscuits and bottles of water with her . . . which she rationed for more than two weeks.
It's a pretty incredible story. And now, someone's accusing her of MAKING THE WHOLE THING UP.
One of her co-workers . . . who wants to remain anonymous . . . claims he and Reshma BOTH survived the collapse the day it happened. And he knows, because they walked away from it TOGETHER.
He says the next time he saw Reshma was 17 days later on the news, when she was supposedly 'rescued' on May 10th. It's not clear why he decided to wait until now to call her out on it.
Meanwhile, Reshma has scored a new job out of the whole ordeal. She's working at a five-star hotel making $450 a month . . . which is about seven times more than she was making at the factory.
