A dozen injured in an explosion at the Girona House of Culture

At least 10 people have been injured in an explosion in the inner courtyard of the Girona House of Culture, although the Emergency Medical System (SEM) currently confirms four: two in a minor state and two more in a minor condition.

The incident took place around 7:30 p.m. Of the injured, there are three adults and five minors, as explained by the mayor, Marta Madrenas, who has clarified that there is no chemical risk.

The Firefighters have sent five crews and the Mossos d’Esquadra are also active. The explosion would have occurred when some experiments were being carried out as part of the Night of Research.

One of the wounded, precisely, would be the assistant of the experiment. Civil Protection has activated the Procicat plan in a state of alert.

According to the Web of the Night of Research, this September 30 from 5:00 p.m., researchers from the University of Girona were going to offer workshops “to explain their research”. The event was designed for children and was going to be enlivened by a magician.
