Earthquake In Mexico Leaves More Than 200 Dead

Desperate parents and rescue workers have pulled through rubble in a floodlit search for dozens of young children feared buried under a Mexico City school destroyed by the country's most lethal earthquake in a generation.


Among the twisted concrete and steel ruin of the Enrique Rebsamen school, soldiers and firefighters found 22 dead children and two adults, while another 30 children and 12 adults were missing, President Enrique Pena Nieto said.

The magnitude-7.1 shock killed more than 200 people — nearly half of them in the capital — on the 32nd anniversary of the 1985 earthquake that killed thousands, and less than two weeks after a powerful tremor killed nearly 100 people in the south of the country.

Mexico's Government said the death toll had been revised down to 216. It was earlier said to be as high as 248.

There were chaotic scenes at the school as parents clung to hope their children had survived.
