Mexico: Death Toll from Earthquake Rises to 90

HeadlineSep 11, 2017

In Mexico, the death toll from Thursday’s devastating 8.2-magnitude earthquake has risen to 90 people as rescue teams continue to search through the rubble in parts of the southern states of Oaxaca and Chiapas. This is survivor Oscar Morga in Oaxaca.

Oscar Morga: “We are practically left with nothing.”

Reporter: “Did you lose everything?”

Oscar Morga: “Everything, absolutely everything. Everything. So a friend came to help me, because authorities aren’t helping us. They just go by and pass us by. They’re not helping us.”

We’ll have more voices from the survivors of Mexico’s earthquake later in the broadcast.
