World: Mexico City Hospital Explosion

Early Thursday morning, a gas explosion occurred at Cuajimalpa Maternal Hospital in Mexico City, Mexico. The blast occurred at 7am when over 100 people were at the hospital. The gas explosion occurred after a hose burst on a truck delivering gas to the hospital, injuring scores of people. 66 people have been injured, 20 of them of which are newborns, and there have been two fatalities. Rescuers continue to look for patients in the rubble of the explosion. Officials are not sure if this is the result of human error, but the truck drivers and workers filling the gas have been detained.
