2 magnitude quake rocks Mexico

Frida the rescue dog emerges as hero of Mexican earthquake 2 magnitude quake rocks Mexico

Dozens of aftershocks have been felt around the country from the two previous devastating quakes, the first of which was recorded along the Pacific coast as an 8.1 magnitude on September 8 and the second, a 7.1 on September 19 that rocked a large portion of central Mexico.

One by one the searches have closed down in recent days, after sniffer dogs were sent in and didn't find life and thermal imaging devices turned up no body heat signatures. "Your family, friends and Dario are waiting for you".

There were two fatal heart attacks blamed on the aftershock, but no other casualties.

The shaking also forced a brief suspension of rescue efforts.

Earlier this month, a magnitude 8.1 quake was centered in the Pacific Ocean off Mexico's southern coast, killing more than 90 people.

Images broadcast on Milenio TV show helmeted members of a Japanese search and rescue team cradling the white dog and petting its head as they bring it down from the wreckage.

Over 220 people are confirmed to have died as a result of the tremor, and though rescue operations are still ongoing there is little hope of pulling survivors from the rubble at this stage.

The smell of decaying bodies wafting from collapsed buildings presaged grief for some relatives.

"We heard them (rescue workers) when they asked us to yell or make noise, but regardless of how much we yelled they couldn't hear us", Pacheco said. A thermal scanner on Saturday had suggested that two people might still be alive under the debris.

Federal Education Secretary Aurelio Nuno said it could take a couple more weeks to inspect all of the schools, and the government will announce each day which schools have been cleared to resume classes.

Throughout the region, buses carried volunteers from Mexico and beyond to disaster sites, where they bolstered search efforts.

The Mexican and foreign crews bent on rescuing survivors refused to call it quits.

"We've been told they have detected areas with life". At one point, Japanese rescuers removed their helmets and bowed before a recovered corpse.

The latest death toll figures have reached 320 from the September 19 natural disaster.

The rest of the deaths occurred in the states of Morelos, Mexico, Puebla, Guerrero and Oaxaca. Many residents and visitors fled homes, hotels and businesses, some in tears.

"Those messages helped them know more or less where we were located", Pacheco said on Friday from her hospital bed, her voice weak. He received videos rooting him on from his football heroes, including Dani Alves of Paris Saint-Germain and Arturo Vidal of Bayern Munich.
