5.8-magnitude tremor strikes Mexico

5.8-magnitude tremor strikes Mexico

The magnitude-7.1 quake struck at around 2:15 p.m. ET and the epicenter was in the state of Puebla, southeast of Mexico City, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The operations have gained endless support on social media, where families are telling search teams where to find missing friends and family members.

Rodrigo Heredia Chia is one of the thousands of amateur search and rescue teams that Mexico has trained. She was one of three survivors saved yesterday from the building.

Rescue workers continued the search Friday for trapped survivors of the magnitude-7.1 quake that shook Mexico City, as anxious relatives kept vigil for news of loved ones.

A spokesman for Mexicos Navy Secretariat and supervisor of rescue efforts at the Enrique Rebsamen school, Adm. Jose Luis Vergara, told Milenio Television late Wednesday that rescuers had established contact with a girl identified as Frida Sofia and were very close to reaching her location and bringing her to safety.

After a 7.1 magnitude quake in Mexico that killed over 280 people nationwide, reports that a girl named Frida Sofia was trapped under a collapsed part of a school in Mexico City circulated quickly through the media, creating an worldwide sensation. There had been reports of a trapped 12-year-old girl, sheltering under a table in the rubble, but she is now believed to be an adult. The preliminary death toll is 228 people.

At least 245 people were killed in Tuesday's quake, according to the most recent official count. One well-known San Francisco chief is doing her part to feed some of the volunteers and rescue workers in a few of the most devastated areas.

Navy assistant secretary Angel Enrique Sarmiento said, while there were blood traces and other signs suggesting someone was alive, all the school's children had been accounted for.

Glyka says he hopes people will not forget the nearby states around Mexico City, including Puebla, Morelos, and Guerrero: "They also have needs", he said. Her trainer attached a leash to her collar, and they're off. Prayers started pouring in on Twitter from people who hoped for the girl's safety. Navarro says rescuers are "just meters away from getting to the children", but the rubble is unstable and they can't access it until it is shored up.

"People are angry", said Esteban Illades, editor of the Mexican magazine Nexos.
