As a result of the collapse suffered four tenants, they were hospitalized, reported earlier Management Information MOE Russia.

"There is an assumption that the four women and a child may be under the rubble, but did not find them because they could move around the house (before collapse) - that is located not in the apartment, but, for example, in the stairwell, and therefore their location difficult to detect, "- said the source.
