Four children died in the accident and residents are still missing. Six people have been rescued from the rubble, including an 11-month-old boy.

The video shows what looks like a scene from a war zone. A massive pile of rubble stands in the gap where the building once stood.

A wall of different coloured wallpaper is all that remains of the scores of apartments blown up in the explosion.

The haunting footage was filmed by Artyom Ibragimov who said he brought his drone to the site of the explosion when he heard the news.
