At least four killed at Moscow mall after hot water pipe bursts

MOSCOW: At least four people were killed and several others injured on Saturday (Jul 22) after a hot water pipe burst at a shopping mall in western Moscow, the city’s mayor said.

Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said some of those injured had suffered burns, and that emergency services were working on the scene.

Video footage showed flooding throughout the building and steam flowing out of a doorway.

The mall, known as Vremena Goda (The Seasons), opened in 2007 and houses over 150 stores.

“We are providing medical assistance to all the victims,” Sobyanin said.
