Rescue workers were frantically trying to search for survivors and render aid to hundreds of people after a massive gas explosion rocked the Chinese city of Shiyan.
At least 12 people were killed in the blast Sunday, while dozens of others were injured. A total of 138 people were rescued as of late Sunday, with 37 of those suffering serious injuries.
The aftermath of the explosion made portions of Shiyan look like a war zone, as homes were flattened and buildings collapsed or were severely damaged. Piles of debris were strewn about the city as rescue workers continued to work the scene.
