Quake death toll rises, survivor trapped under school

Soft spots 1,000s of California’s buildings earthquake-prone

The death toll in the powerful 7.1 magnitude quake that rattled Mexico on Tuesday climbed to 250 as rescue workers backed by an army of volunteers on Thursday searched for survivors buried under mounds of rubble, officials said.

Adding to the national sense of vulnerability, the quake also came just 12 days after another temblor that killed almost 100 people and left more than 200 injured, mainly in the southern states of Oaxaca and Chiapas.

The President ordered the evacuation of patients from damaged hospitals amid widespread power cuts and fears of more buildings collapsing from aftershocks. Citizens and rescue crews searched through the night under the rubble for loved ones and victims who might be trapped.

Aurelio Nuño, Mexico's education secretary, confirmed that the girl was alive, but said that he did not know the fate of the other children. Rescuers found her as they saw her wriggling fingers protruding from the rubble.

Earlier in the day, the megaphone announced the names of two children rescued from the rubble, alive.

At least 19 students and six adults died in the collapsed school and 11 were rescued, according to the BBC report. It collapsed as teachers were attempting to escort the children outside to safety.
