Minneapolis school building collapses: 3 unaccounted for

A section of Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis collapsed Wednesday afternoon, according to video from KSTP-TV.

Ruth Berg, 47, who was engaged to be married, was found by search crews in the rubble of Minnehaha Academy in the city of Minneapolis.

The fire department says both individuals worked at the school. "Ruth was a great friend of mine a wonderful human being I will miss her immensely RIP my good friend".

It appeared that no children were hurt in the incident and that all students and other staff members were eventually "accounted for and safe", officials said.

Neighbors embrace along 31st Street in Minneapolis, just outside of Minnehaha Academy's Upper Campus. "We do have two people who are unaccounted for".

One person still remains unaccounted for.

Dr. James Miner of Hennepin County Medical Center told reporters the patients had fractures and head injuries, but no burns.

But it really forces the question, how much journalistic integrity does Fox News really have?

Authorities say seven adults are hospitalized following a gas explosion that leveled part of a school in Minneapolis.

Minnehaha Academy is a K-12th grade private Christian school with about 825 students enrolled. The 2017-18 school year is set to begin August 23. "We were prepared for a lot more injuries". "It is a good thing that it's the summertime and probably limited the amount of people that were in the building".

According to the people who were inside the building at the time, they had very less time for them to run for safety between the time they smelled the odor of the leaking gas and the actual explosion happening.

"It would have been dramatically worse. we were pretty lucky in that sense", Fruetel said. Crews extinguishing fire, searching for victims and extricating.

There were ongoing fire suppression efforts at the school right after the explosion occurred. "Every day, the students would lead announcements and she would help them". "Get out!" according to Jack Mahler, who was warming up for soccer practice.

"I was sitting reading the paper and just a huge blast!"

Family members told local news channel KARE that John Carlson, an 81-year-old custodian, was still missing and that no one had been able to reach him.

Gov. Mark Dayton pledged resources for first responders.

The explosion only affected the upper school, officials said; the lower school is several miles away and is undamaged.

They said: "1 fatality reported and at least persons trapped beneath collapse reported. It sounded like a large door shutting, and at the same time the lights went out and there was some debris that fell from the ceiling, so we just got out as fast as possible", Vanleer told the Associated Press.
