At Least 28 Killed in Apartment Block Collapse

The death toll in a Russian apartment block collapse has risen to 28 as crews continue to sift through the rubble.

13 others remain unaccounted for in the partial building collapse in Moscow that occurred early Monday morning. The collapse was prompted by an explosion, believed to be created by a gas leak, that damaged at least 48 different apartments.

Among the wreckage was a baby boy, who was found alive after spending 35 hours in the freezing cold. More than 900 people have been working to clear out the rubble, with only six people having been rescued alive.
