Central Mexico was hit by a massive earthquake this week, which has claimed the lives of at least 230 people. A 7.1 magnitude quake occurred 120 kilometres from Mexico City on Tuesday, less than two weeks after an even stronger earthquake - the country’s most powerful ever - off the coast of southern Mexico, killing in excess of 90 people.More than 2,000 public school buildings suffered damage, according to Mexico’s education secretary, raising questions over whether building standards had been adhered to. On Wednesday, one day after the quake, media attention focused on the Enrique Rebsamen elementary school in Mexico City, where rescue workers made contact with a 12-year-old girl trapped underneath the rubble. Mexico’s El Universal daily said the girl, for communication purposes called ‘Frida’, gave rescue workers hope and strength. Many parents are still waiting to hear their children’s fate.
