Pepsi warehouse collapsed: Town flooded, workers injured

Moscow: PepsiCo. Warehouse of 300 sq meter, collapsed in the south-western Russian town of Lebedyan, leaving two workers stuck in an elevator 38 meters up in the air.

“According to preliminary information, one of the men was injured,” the deputy head of the local authorities, Valeriy Golovan, told NTV.

The collapse caused thousands of gallons of orange, tomato, apple and other juices to leak and flow out into the nearby River Don
