A man trapped in the rubble of a residential building on Sunday afternoon after a gas explosion in The Hague was released by emergency services shortly before midnight.

The 28-year-old man who became aware of his rescue was hospitalized, and it's still unclear how tall his injuries are. His parents, with whom he lived in the apartment, were also injured.

A total of 1

0 people in Jan van der Heijdenstraat were involved in the explosion around 4:00 pm and eight were taken to hospital for minor injuries. Below was a woman who had to be rescued with a crane.

The city's fire department said a gas explosion was the cause and shut off supplies to the road. Dozens of people were evacuated from neighboring properties because of the collapse of other buildings.

Pauline Krikke, mayor of the city, visited the scene on Sunday evening and described the incident as "terrible for those directly involved". For the residents of about 20 houses, which were declared unsafe, hotel accommodations have been established.

In support of the rescue efforts, Alphen aan den Rijn and Beusichem in Gelderland have set up specialized relief teams.
