Injured and bleeding, mothers carrying infants fled from a maternity hospital shattered by a powerful gas explosion on Thursday, and rescuers swung sledgehammers to break through fallen concrete in hunt for others who may have been trapped.
At least three adults and one baby were killed, said Claudia Dominguez, spokeswoman for the city’s civil defense agency. She said she could not verify a report by a local borough chief, Adrian Rubalcava, that seven had died. Federal Interior Secretary Miguel Angel Osorio Chong said there was no official count so far of dead and injured.
City officials said 54 were injured.
