Irene Eklund is in shock. On the night of Monday to Tuesday a serious explosion occurred in an apartment building in Hasselby Strand (district of the capital Stockholm, note). Sprint Star (26) also lives there. The athlete was clearly shocked and informed her followers on Instagram. “An explosion occurred in the stairwell of a residential building in Haselby on Monday night. I live in this house and my apartment was one of those that was blown up in this context. I was in the house and apartment during the explosion and I had to jump out the window with my dog and run away,” the athlete wrote.
Eklund also thanked you for your messages. Still, he asked to be alone first. This was especially true of the media. She wants to recover from this shock first. “I feel fine physically, but I’m very shaken up and coming to terms with what I’ve just endured,” the 200 meters sprint specialist said.
Three people were injured in the explosion. This resulted in significant damage, such as destroyed facades or detached rear doors. Residents were initially not allowed to return to their apartments and had to remain behind a police cordon. “The whole floor was vibrating. “I felt like I was going to fall off my chair,” one local resident told Swedish media Aftonbladet.
Swedish police have already opened an investigation into attempted murder and serious public harm. Two masked men were reportedly seen running away from the scene. The police are now actively searching for the criminals. There is suspicion of connection with a criminal organization.
