One worker is missing and three others were injured after an explosion ripped through a chemical plant in Shanghai's Songjiang District early this morning.

The explosion happened at Shanghai Habo Chemical Technology Co around 2:30am. The powerful blast shattered windows of the factory and nearby buildings.

A worker's mishandling of peracetic acid caused the blowup, preliminary investigation has found. The worker remains missing.
