6 years ago83 views

One person has been killed and two others are in a critical condition in hospital after an explosion in a residential apartment building in Baoding, China on Saturday.

There are at least 34 people being treated for their injuries in the local hospital.

[Doctor, Baoding Emergency Center]:
"The injuries are mostly combined injuries from the blast, and some are covered with dirt. We need to check the details in triage."

Police suspect criminal intent in the explosion which collapsed part of the six-floor apartment and damaged 5 adjacent buildings.

Witnesses say the explosion happened at about 3 pm and was violent enough to shatter windows over 220 yards away.

[Injured Person]:
"I just woke up at home, and was on my way to the bathroom, when the window glass hit me. I thought it was an earthquake."

Rescue work is still under way and the residents whose homes were affected have been relocated.
