Mexico focuses search for quake survivors on 10 buildings; 273 deadBy Daniel Trotta and Lizbeth Diaz MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Rescuers swarmed over rubble with shovels and picks on Thursday in a frantic search for survivors two days after Mexico’s deadliest earthquake in a generation, focusing on 10 collapsed buildings where people may still be alive. Mexico City Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera said 50 people were not accounted for.
