A gas tank trunk explosion in front of a hospital in Mexico City on Thursday morning shattered  the hospital, killing seven people, including four babies and injuring dozens.

More than 100 people were inside the Cuajimalpa Maternal Hospital when the blast occurred at about 7 a.m.

The explosion was caused by a truck which was supplying gas to the hospital when apparently a hose burst and the resulting leak caused an explosion.
