Rescuers have pulled an infant boy alive from the rubble of an apartment building, some 35 hours after a collapse that has killed at least seven people and left dozens missing.

They found the baby on Tuesday after hearing cries amid the debris.

A section of the 10-storey building in Magnitogorsk, Russia collapsed on Monday following an explosion believed to have been triggered by a natural gas leak.

The baby, who officials initially said was a girl, was seriously injured and his recovery prospects were unclear.

The boy’s mother survived the collapse and went to a local hospital to identify him.
