Officials: No Missing Kids In Collapsed Mexico City School

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s navy says there are no missing children at a collapsed Mexico City school where rescuers have been hunting for a girl they believed to be trapped.

Assistant Navy Secretary Angel Enrique Sarmiento says there is evidence of a person who may still alive, but he says it’s probably a school worker.

The search for the supposedly missing girl has been a focus of attention across the country as a symbol of hope after Tuesday’s magnitude 7.1 earthquake.

Sarmiento says 11 children were rescued alive after the quake, while 19 children and six adults died.
