The news is alive with the Mexico earthquake and although it is on the other side of the world, it has its resonance with Almuñécar – one of its firemen has gone there.
Fireman David Cabrera and his rescue dog were selected, together with firemen from Huelva, Sevilla, Málaga and Écija, all with their rescue dogs, too.
They left Thursday the 23rd from Madrid enroute for Mexico DF, to join rescuers in search of survivors, thanks to the coordination and sponsorship of the Fundación Mapfre. The said foundation moved into operation on the Wednesday, providing food and medicine
They will be back on Monday the 25th as by then heavy machinery will have begun to move in to recover bodies, as after 72 hours the chance of finding somebody alive is very slim.
