MOSCOW | Baby rescued from rubble 35 hours after apartment collapse
MOSCOW — Russian rescuers on Tuesday pulled an infant boy alive from the rubble of an apartment building, some 35 hours after a collapse that killed at least seven people and left dozens missing.
They found the baby after hearing cries amid the debris. A section of the 10-story building in the city of Magnitogorsk collapsed on Monday following an explosion believed to have been triggered by a natural gas leak.
The child, who officials initially said was a girl, was seriously injured and his recovery prospects were unclear.
