Jennifer Ortega, a witness to the incident, said that she was with her mother in the building when they heard a thunderous noise: “We heard that it collapsed and something exploded, we did not know if it was outside or inside the place. They all started running and screaming in despair”, she said.

Employees were also checking that no one took any products from the store.
