Russian Apartment Block Blast Kills 3, Dozens Missing

The two discoveries were reported by Russian news agencies hours after an 11-month-old boy was pulled alive from the wreckage Tuesday in the Russian city of Magnitogorsk

At least four people were killed on Monday after a gas explosion party destroyed a high-rise residential building in the Russian city of Magnitogorsk, 1,400 kilometers (870 miles) southeast of Moscow.

The blast rocked the apartment complex at around 4 a.m. local time, completely collapsing one of its sections.

RIA said it ripped through the building about 6am (local time) when many residents were asleep.

The emergencies ministry said on its web site that the section of the building could have collapsed due to a natural gas blast.

Emergency service workers are trying to evacuate trapped residents.

Four people were killed and almost 70 unaccounted for after a gas explosion tore through a residential building in Russian Federation on Monday, leaving hundreds without a home in freezing temperatures on New Year's Eve. President Vladimir Putin arrived in the city to oversee the rescue efforts.

The Soviet-era high-rise was built in 1973 and was home to around 1,100 people. Sixteen people were evacuated from floors of the building not impacted by the blast.

Dubrovsky, the local governor, said authorities planned to buy apartments for people who had lost their homes.

According to the regional government, Russian Health Minister Veronika Skvortsova and Emergency Situations Minister Yevgeny Zinichev have arrived in Magnitogorsk and are now at the site.

Deadly gas explosions are relatively common in Russian Federation where much of the infrastructure dates back to the Soviet era and safety requirements are often ignored.
