According to Mikrofonnews Agency (MHA), at least 41 people died tens other wounded, after a hospital in South Korea caught fire on Friday.
Local officials say some 50 patients have been shifted to other hospitals. Around 200 patients were in the hospital as the first floor caught fire and blaze spread rapidly. Officials fear number of fatalities may climb up.
Videos posted on social media showed a patient hanging on to a rope dangling from a helicopter above the hospital in Miryang, in the far south, and another crawling out of a window to climb down a ladder, Daily Mail reports. Cause of the incident, which described worst in the recent years in South Korea, is not clear so far.
