Rescuers Find Body of Second Spaniard Killed in Mexico Earthquake

MADRID – Mexican rescue workers and members of Spain’s Military Emergencies Unit (UME) recovered on Friday the body of a Spaniard who had been trapped in the rubble of a Mexico City building toppled by the powerful Sept. 19 earthquake.

The UME said the body of Jorge Gomez Varo was found buried in the the collapsed building’s second floor, which was only accessible after heavy machinery was brought in to remove large concrete slabs.

Gomez Varo is the second Spaniard found dead as a result of the magnitude-7.1 earthquake; earlier, rescuers had recovered the body of Leopoldo Nieto Cisneros, a doctor from Madrid.

Gomez Varo, who had been the last Spaniard still missing in the aftermath of the quake, was at his work station in the offices of Spanish firm Valora Consultores when the temblor struck.

He was accompanied by a female colleague who had communicated by phone that both were alive.

The Sept. 19 earthquake and a magnitude-8.2 temblor that struck just off Mexico’s southern coast on Sept. 7 have left a combined total of at least 442 dead.

The majority of those fatalities were caused by the Sept. 19 quake, whose epicenter was located in the central state of Morelos and left 344 dead, 186 of them in Mexico City.
