A gas truck “exploded outside a maternity and children’s hospital in Mexico City, killing a woman and a baby” Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera has gone on record saying. Earlier figures stated that 7 were dead, 4 of which were babies. Workers had been working on repairing the hose running from the truck to the hospital kitchen for 15 to 20 minutes. This hospital was a public one. Private healthcare is available, but “the patients who used it [the public hospital] did not have the money to pay for private healthcare.” This is not the first fatal gas explosion in nation. Over the years this has been several explosions similar to this.
