MOSCOW, July 13. /TASS/. The death toll in Sunday’s collapse of the Russian Airborne Troops training center barracks in the Omsk Region has reached 13 people, Russia’s Defense Ministry said Monday.
"As of 7:30 Moscow Time, 32 servicemen had been taken out of the debris, 13 of them dead. A total of 19 servicemen are in medical institutions," the ministry said.
A regional law enforcement source earlier said the accident might have been caused by violations during repair work.
"The barracks in the village of Svetly recently underwent repairs. According to one of the versions, errors possibly occurred during the repair, including a change in design of the building," the source said. "This version will be checked."
He said the external wall and roof partially collapsed.
A section of the four-story barracks of the Airborne Troops training center in the Omsk Region in Siberia collapsed on Sunday at 19:52 Moscow Time (16:52 UTC). There were 337 servicemen inside, and 38 found themselves under the debris.
