Mexico recently suffered two strong earthquakes that brought the death toll to 295 and still rising. It devastated the nation. The U.S. and other surrounding nations sent help to support the country in this difficult time and to aid the rescue operation.

As volunteers clear up the debris of crumbled buildings to rescue survivors, more tragic stories are emerging as the rescue effort continues. 

A two-month-old girl's christening baptism at Santiago Apostol Church turned into a tragedy with 11 people dead. The girl's father is the sole survivor of the family. Two other survivors from the church are the priest and his assistant.

The survivors moved closer to the wall while people who died didn't have time to do so. The volunteers have dug up for a half a day and located all 11 members' bodies and the two-month-old girl.
