It is worth mentioning that since 5:00 p.m. this Friday visibility was covered of the place where the maneuvers are carried out.
According to the version given in an interview for VANGUARD by Mr Fernando Pompa Maldonado, father of Fernando, He pointed out that his son could be, who along with another of his companions who descends in the company of a group of divers and rescue experts, inside the mine damagedbecause they know its structure and operation in detail to show you the place.
Regarding the second minerit transpired among the relatives of the workers, that it would be Aureliano Torres Ramirez, the second to descend into the mine that almost caught them, this at the request of the federal authorities.
However the father of Ferdinandis reluctant for his son to descend because he assures that he was lucky first time, but also maintains that they are his companions and you can’t leave them.
However, he emphasizes thato Do you think the situation in which your son and at least one more of his classmates find themselves is fair? (who had started working in the mine two days ago), since he recently discovered that he had not been registered with the IMSS for his medical care.
“We as a family do not agree, because he is very beaten and was lucky once, but we have already pointed out to him that the decision is his. In addition, as well as the one who did not have insurance until a month ago, there are others down there who barely had two days working in the mine and obviously they didn’t have insurance“says Mr. Pomp Maldonado.
He details that his son realized that he did not have medical service just last month, After five years working in the mine and thinking that he did have it, because he went to a consultation for a throat infection and since he did not appear in the system as a beneficiary, he complained to his employers and they granted him this benefit.
“Down there there is a guy who had just entered, was not discharged and just that day the manager was looking to discharge him. If the IMSS accepted that, it’s corruption, because that’s how everything is handled here. The only thing I tell my son is that he not sign anything and that they fix his situation, because on his disability paper it only says that he had contributed for one month, and where are the other five? “, questions.
