One person has been crushed to death and two are fighting for life after a massive explosion ripped though a chemical plant in Spain.
The shockwave from the blast in Tarragona in northeastern Spain caused a house to collapse on top of one person, killing them.
A plant worker was still unaccounted for nearly three hours after the 6.40pm blasts on an industrial estate near the east coast city an hour’s drive south of Barcelona.
Catalan Interior Minister Miguel Buch, who confirmed the death and an injury toll of eight, said authorities had not ruled out the possibility the missing worker could have left the site unharmed.
The person who died was inside a flat near the plant which collapsed in the aftermath of the explosions.
