Gas Canister Causes Building Collapse In Ashdod; Two Serious Injuries [VIDEO & PHOTOS]


United Hatzalah volunteers treated two people, on in serious condition and the other in moderate-to-serious condition after a building with a restaurant in it partially collapsed on Martin Buber Street in Ashdod, Thursday night.

The collapse was reportedly caused by gas canisters that exploded.

The two injured – one man in his 30s and another in his 50s – were evacuated to a nearby hospital for treatment.

United Hatzalah volunteer EMT Avi Amar said: “When I arrived at the scene together with an ambulance team from United Hatzalah we saw a massive amount of debris due to a partial building collapse. Firefighters pulled out two people from the wreckage whom we treated at the scene before they were transported to the hospital. They were in serious and moderate to serious condition.”
