Hunt for hotel survivors ends

Thai rescue teams who have retrieved 102 bodies from the Royal Plaza Hotel gave up hope of finding more survivors yesterday, four days after the six-storey hotel collapsed, Reuter reports from Nakhon Ratchasima.

Police and rescue workers said they were still struggling to extricate at least 20 bodies from the concrete and steel remains of the first- class hotel. A woman whose legs were amputated at the site so she could be pulled from under a beam was in good condition in hospital, but the last survivor found, whose crushed legs were later amputated, was in critical condition.
