Acapulco.- The earthquake of the September 7th caused the fall of a fence on a 14-year-old girl identified as José María in the community of Tortolitas, Guerrero. Despite surviving the initial impact, the injuries caused that day caused his death during the afternoon of this Saturday.
José María is the third victim mortal of the earthquake registered last Tuesday. The first was a man who was crushed by a light pole while riding a motorcycle in the community of Luces del Mar, municipality of Coyuca de Benítez.
The second fatality was a 60-year-old woman, who died of respiratory arrest at the Xaltianguis health clinic, Acapulco, due to injuries sustained during the earthquake. The latter was confirmed by the governor of Guerrero, Héctor Astudillo.
“Many families continue to sleep in the open after the earthquake and the more than 600 aftershocks that have been presented; among the requests they made to me, the urgent request to rehabilitate the water pump is the one that we resolved immediately,” the PRI explained.
After the recent request, the family and friends of the teenager made a call through social networks to Governor Héctor Astudillo and the mayor of Acapulco, Adela Román, to provide support to the family that is of limited resources.
The relatives of José María organized a mass that was officiated this Saturday by the priest of the church, Pedro Torres García, in the parish of San José in the La Poza neighborhood, in Acapulco.
The earthquake of September 7 left a series of collateral damage that to this day continues to afflict the population, such as the electricity blackout and the cut in the supply of drinking water in the town of El Playón. Faced with this situation, the governor of Guerrero visited its inhabitants this Saturday to learn about the situation.
Similarly, the state president spoke with the residents of Xaltianguis who blocked the Acapulco-Mexico federal highway. The protesters demanded support to repair the more than 500 houses that were damaged by the earthquake and the 150 buildings that collapsed.
