MEXICO CITY.- An element of the National Guard who was returning home is one of the 24 people who died after the collapse of a trab on Metro Line 12 and the fall of two train cars, near the Olivos station.
His wife, who requested that her identity be reserved, went to the Iztapalapa 6 Territorial Investigation Prosecutor’s Office to identify the deceased agent.
Middle managers of the National Guard came to provide support for the delivery of the body and do all the legal procedures that allow it to be a beneficiary of the institutional support that that security corporation – dependent on the Secretariat of Security and Citizen Protection – provides to the elements that die in fulfillment of their functions.
In the Iztapalapa 6 Prosecutor’s Office, the bodies of at least 19 victims of the accident were placed, so a cell of the capital government was concentrated in that place to attend to relatives.
Led by Tonatiuh Ávila, a representative of the Government Undersecretariat, workers from the Civil Registry and the Government Secretariat provided care to the dozens of family members who were sheltered in a tent that was placed in the place by the authorities of the Attorney General’s Office Justice of Mexico City.
Representatives of the García López and Olimpia funeral homes were also present at the site, who promised to support the families of the deceased with cremations, burials and free funeral procedures, thanks to collaboration agreements signed with the Government Secretariat, the Capital Prosecutor’s Office and the C-5 Monitoring Center, dependent on the Secretariat for Citizen Security.
