Mexican authorities treat 93 migrants out of 400 found in a trailer in Veracruz


Mexican authorities have treated 93 migrants out of a total of 400 who have been found after being abandoned in a trailer on a highway in the Mexican state of Veracruz, a month after 53 migrants died in a similar vehicle in the United States.

The rescued migrants have assured that they were running out of air and have broken the upper part of the trailer box, at which point several witnesses have helped them get out to prevent them from suffocating to death.

The rest of the migrants have fled so as not to be found by the Mexican authorities, as reported by Azteca television.

"Among all they say that they broke the upper part and the workers of a gas station have helped them to open those who were trapped inside. They abandoned them and they were suffocating. There were around 400 people," explained the Civil Protection doctor of the municipality of Oluta, Cristobal Cisneros.

In this context, Civil Protection of Mexico has reported that some of the migrants were unconscious, others were dehydrated and some had fractures after jumping from the roof of the trailer. Twelve of the rescued migrants have been taken to hospital.

"We found people in very poor condition, some hypertensive, diabetic, people who jumped four meters high, that's why they have possible fractures, nervous breakdown, minors, we missed other children who left, but the work is being done to continue looking for them to attend to them", stressed Kenia Iveth de Dios, a doctor from the Civil Protection of Mexico.

A total of 53 migrants died in a trailer in the US city of San Antonio, in the state of Texas at the end of June.
