A man trapped in a residential building after a gas explosion in The Hague on Sunday afternoon was finally released by saviors shortly before midnight.
The 28-year-old man who was conscious when he was rescued was taken to hospital and it is still unclear what the degree of his injuries is. His parents with whom he lived in the apartment were also injured.

The fire in the city said the cause was a gas explosion and shutting down the street. Dozens of other people have been evacuated from neighboring properties because the blast has left other buildings in danger of collapse.
Mayor Pauline Kryke visits the scene on Sunday night and describes the incident as "terrible to those who are directly involved." Hotel accommodation is organized for residents of about 20 homes that have been declared dangerous.
Specialized support teams have been prepared by Alphen aan den Rijn and Beusichem in Gelderland to help rescue efforts.
