Second Body Pulled From School Explosion

Second Body Pulled From School Explosion”

The bodies were found in the rubble of a building that partially collapsed during the blast at the Minnehaha Academy, Minneapolis Fire Chief John Fruetel said during a news conference. The state fire marshal's office is assisting in the investigation.

Minnehaha Academy was founded in 1913 and teaches more than 800 students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade on two campuses, according to its website.

A school janitor was reported missing, but officials have not released the name of the second person who died. The fire dept. says the person killed and the person unaccounted for are staff members.

Hennepin County Medical Centre said on Twitter that nine people arrived there for treatment, including one in critical condition.

Fire crews were searching for possible victims and extinguishing a blaze after a building collapsed at Minnehaha Academy in Minneapolis on August 2, 2017, officials said. He says the building is unstable and noted that making it safe for rescuers will take time. Asst. Fire Chief Bryan Tyner says investigation is underway into what caused the explosion.

The school released a statement earlier in the day saying all of its summer program students and staff were "accounted for and safe". Five have been discharged, while four remain. One of the runners said the team had just left the building and described the scene.

Aerial video footage of the school's campus showed part of a building crumbled, windows in other areas blown out and shattered, and bricks and other debris scattered about.

Tyner said three people were rescued from the roof. He also said three people were unaccounted for, and it is now unknown if those individuals are adults or children.

There was a gas leak and explosion at the Upper School. If you need to pick up a person from the school, pick up on Edmond Blvd.

Sara Jacobson, executive director of institutional advancement for the school, told KSTP's Todd Wilson there were a dozen students in the gym when the apparent explosion happened.

Phillip Day, 41, said he, his wife and their 17-year-old daughter, Chimali, had been meeting a counselor at the school to discuss college options when the explosion occurred. She said it is now unknown if they're OK.
