Death of Injured Man in Mexico Raises Fuego Volcano Eruption Death Toll

GUATEMALA CITY – A 43-year-old Guatemalan man died on Tuesday in Mexico, where he had been hospitalized for the injuries he sustained from the eruption of the Fuego volcano in Guatemala, bringing the death toll to 112.

Minister of Public Health and Social Assistance Carlos Soto confirmed on social media that the injured patient in Mexico, “who had lost all his family in the eruption” on June 3, had died.

“There are days like today that hurts not only the heart but also the soul,” Soto said.

A girl also died the same day in the US due to the severity of burns in her respiratory tract.

Seven children were admitted to Shriners Hospital for Children – Galveston, in Texas, US, while six others remained hospitalized in Mexico.

The two fatalities in Mexico and the US raised the death toll from the June 3 eruption in Guatemala to 112.

The disaster marks one of the largest volcanic eruptions recorded in recent years and has left 55 people injured and more than 1.7 million Guatemalans affected with almost 200 people reported missing.
