Taiwan to Send Rescue Teams to Mexico after Earthquake

TAIPEI – Taiwan offered on Wednesday to send rescue and relief teams to Mexico, where a magnitude-7.1 earthquake killed more than 200 people.

“Taiwan’s search and rescue personnel and dogs are ready to fly immediately to Mexico and offer help,” government spokesperson Hsu Kuo-yung said in a press conference.

Mexican rescue teams had arrived in Taiwan in 1991 to lend support and rescue people trapped beneath the rubble of collapsed buildings after the most devastating earthquake struck the island and left around 2,700 people dead.

Five Taiwanese nationals were reportedly trapped in a building, after the earthquake hit Mexico on Tuesday afternoon, where a Taiwanese Chen Po-wen ran a shoe business, Taiwan’s official representative in Mexico said on Wednesday.
