ST. PETERSBURG, April 3. /TASS/. Injured riders from the blast that hit the St. Petersburg metro came to each other’s assistance, while bracing for the worst, an eyewitness told TASS on Monday.
Everybody in the subway car was already bracing for death, so to speak. Everyone was waiting for the eventual consequences following the explosion but then we were pulled out and people began helping each other, taking others out of the subway car and most of them were soaked in blood," the eyewitness said.
Another eyewitness said that people were waiting for the evacuation for several minutes.
"I saw some dead, at least 3-4 persons. Emergency services arrived at the scene in 5-7 minutes," the eyewitness said.
A blast went off at the Technological Institute metro station in St. Petersburg. By now, all the metro stations in the city have been closed.
