Moment Apartment Blows Up In Fatal Gas Explosion In Russia

This is the moment an apartment blows up in Russia in a suspected gas blast that has killed a young girl.

The incident, which took place in the city of Naberezhnye Chelny, which is located in the Republic of Tatarstan in western Russia, also destroyed several other apartments on the fourth and fifth floors, according to local media outlet NTV.

The footage appears to have been filmed from a car dash cam and the news outlet reports that investigators are looking into two versions of events. One possibility is that the equipment supplying gas to the building was faulty and a second possibility is that equipment using gas was improperly operated.

The local media outlet reports that the explosion took place in the evening of 25th October in an apartment occupied by an unnamed person who was denied gas services after refusing to pay his bills and that he is an alcoholic.

The young girl was reported to have died in the explosion, and a 17-year-old teenager as well as a 70-year-old man were injured and are still being treated. An 11-year-old boy was also injured but his condition is said to be stable.

The authorities are currently investigating the incident.
