Video and pictures surfaced Friday displaying the aftermath of an explosion that destroyed a luxurious five-star resort in Havana that left at the least 18 individuals lifeless.
Photos of the in depth injury present elements of Hotel Saratoga lacking its partitions and home windows, with particles scattered alongside the bottom. A retailer on the bottom ground was decreased to rubble. One photograph exhibits three automobiles, two that look like taxis, that had been struck by falling particles. One of the taxi’s is partially buried within the rubble.
In one video posted on-line, plumes of thick smoke will be seen across the resort, shortly overlaying the road in entrance.
“Ay, Dios mío!” a girl will be heard saying within the video. That means “Oh My God.”
Another video exhibits individuals strolling across the space of the destroyed resort, which is surrounded by police tape, as search-and-rescue operations proceed.
The resort continues to be standing. Based on the preliminary investigation, it seems it was a fuel explosion.
