MAGNITOGORSK APARTMENT BLOCK COLLAPSE
Fireball destroys Russian apartment block, killing at least four and leaving scores unaccounted for after gas explosion rips through building
A fireball has destroyed a Russian apartment block, killing at least four and leaving 68 unaccounted for after a gas explosion ripped through the building. The blast rocked the high-rise building at 6am as people were preparing to celebrate New Year's Eve in Magnitogorsk in the country's Chelyabinsk region - but the death toll is expected to rise. Officials say dozens are missing after the fireball resulted in seven upper floors of the building giving way. Several hundred rescuers were scrambling to pull adults and children from the debris after the building collapsed 'like a house of cards'. There are reports that some residents jumped from windows in a desperate attempt to escape. President Vladimir Putin flew into Magnitogorsk late on Monday afternoon, visiting the injured in hospital and meeting with local authorities, state television showed. Putin looked on as rescue workers toiled in temperatures of -22 Celsius (-8 Fahrenheit) to locate people trapped in the debris. Source
