A woman was found dead under the rubble this morning after a house collapsed in the city of Himer, Germany in the Sauerland region as a result of an explosion. Police said that at around 8.50 a.m., rescue workers were able to locate a woman who could only be rescued from under the rubble. The identity of the woman is not yet certain.
Rescue workers continued their search in the morning. The site was confiscated and secured by the police forces. Two people were rescued from the rubble during the night. Rescue workers first provided medical care to a man and a woman on the spot and then took them to a clinic.
Two injured people were rescued last night. One of the victims was hospitalized with serious injuries, while the other had minor injuries, it was reported. Three of the house’s eight residents may not have been home at the time of the meltdown.
The apartment building was completely destroyed by yesterday’s explosion. Police and firefighters assume a gas explosion. Investigations are still underway to determine the cause of the explosion.
