An estimated 50 survivors were discovered Friday with the piles of rubble that once served as a garment factory Bangladesh.

The multi-storied garment facility collapsed on Wednesday, killing more than 300. Friday’s discover brings the total victims who have been saved to 2,300.

CNN reported the survivors were discovered inside a cavity within the rubble. Rescue workers found them when they dug a tunnel through the debris to what had been the third floor.

Though alive, the survivors are still inside the rubble. CNN reported that rescue workers estimate it could take hours to reach them and pull them to safety.
