MONTREAL - The woman who was buried for six hours under rubble from a deadly explosion at a Quebec factory on Thursday was released from hospital on Saturday afternoon.
Five of the 19 people injured in the blast are still in hospital, and one of them is fighting for life.
Two workers were killed Thursday afternoon after an explosion tore apart the Neptune Technologies and Bioresources Inc. factory in Quebec's eastern townships.
About 15,000 litres of acetone, a common solvent, ignited and gutted the factory.
One man is in hospital in Sherbrooke with multiple fractures. Four others were transferred to a burn unit in Montreal. Three of the four are in critical, but stable condition, while the fourth person is fighting for life.
Doctors placed three of the four burn victims in artificial comas.
About 130 workers at the plant were given psychological treatment after the blast.
