MOSCOW, February 27 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s Emergency Situations Ministry is airlifting rescue workers, dog handlers and psychologists to the city of Astrakhan, in the lower reaches of the Volga River, where part of an apartment building has been ruined by an explosion of the household gas, the ministry’s department has told Itar-Tass.
Monday’s explosion completely destroyed one section of a six-entrance nine-storey apartment building. According to the latest statistics, eleven people were injured, and six of them taken to the hospital. Fourteen people were evacuated from the neighboring sections.
Rescuers do not rule out that survivors may be found under the ruins. Trained dogs are searching the site.
