Early Monday morning, an explosion caused serious damage to the facade of the Chilena Consolidada insurance company building in the gentrified Providencia municipality, leaving one person with hearing trauma.
The explosion damaged the company’s windows, broke the glass enclosing a Transantiago bus stop, and hurt the hearing of a man waiting at the bus stop.
The event occurred after 12:30 a.m., with the strength of the explosion―which could be heard over a 10-block radius―causing much concern among the people who live in the area.
GOPE (Police Special Operations Group) agents arrived at the scene of the explosion in the company of one of district attorney Francisco Jacir’s minions in order to apply their expertise.
Also last night, a fake bomb warning forced GOPE to evacuate one of the largest bus stations in Santiago, causing a great deal of chaos and frustration among officials and citizens.
