149 killed as 7.1 magnitude earthquake shakes Mexico City

149 killed as 7.1 magnitude earthquake shakes Mexico City
7.1 magnitude earthquake hit Mexico on Tuesday, shaking buildings in the capital of Mexico City, sending people fleeing into the street and causing causalities.


Officials said 149 people lost their lives following the quake.

11 people died in Puebla state, according to Francisco Sanchez, spokesman for the state's Interior Department.

Gov. Alfredo del Mazo told the Televisa news network that two people died in the State of Mexico, which also borders the capital: a quarry worker who was killed when the quake unleashed a rockslide and another person who was hit by a falling lamppost.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said 27 buildings had collapsed in the capital, Mexico City.

Rescue workers rushed to the site of damaged or collapsed buildings in the capital, and reporters saw onlookers cheer as a woman was pulled from the rubble.

Rescuers immediately called for silence so that they could listen for others who might be trapped.
