“She was in a flat cake. There is nothing left of her,” he shared.
Andrei said that he parked the car five minutes before the explosion and was at home when it happened. He noted that he saw with his own eyes how the house collapsed, and remained intact, because the blast wave passed from the other side.
“God saved me. So I put it down, went in, sat down and there was an explosion. I’ve been thrown away. If I had been sitting in the car, they would have taken me away and would have buried me in three days, ”the man added.
A gas explosion occurred in a five-story building on February 7. A local resident said that only one wall remained from the entrance of the house.
