Death Toll From Mexico's 7.1 Magnitude Earthquake Keeps Rising

At Least 20 Children Killed After Earthquake Destroys Mexico City Primary School

The death toll in the powerful 7.1 magnitude natural disaster that rattled Mexico on Tuesday climbed to 250 as rescue workers backed by an army of volunteers on Thursday searched for survivors buried under mounds of rubble, officials said.

Hundreds of volunteers reportedly came together Tuesday to attept to find survivors from the school after it was leveled in the 7.1 magnitude quake. We are with you and will be there for you.' Mexico City, one of the world's most populous, and the surrounding area are home to about 20 million people.

Rescue teams initially reported that a 12-year-old child may be sheltering under a table, but now they say they believe it is an adult.

Emergency workers held up signs commanding "Silence" so crews could listen for the sounds of any survivors.

A civilian volunteer - a slight man - was able to squeeze into a narrow channel through the rubble to reach the girl and pass her water and oxygen.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said he and House Republicans were "a little frustrated the Senate has not acted on a seminal promise". With their narrow 52-48 majority in the Senate and solid Democratic opposition, three GOP "no" votes would doom the bill.

"It's been very sad and also you feel that you're powerless", she said.

Human chains of rescuers sped up efforts to remove rubble from collapsed buildings in Mexico City today, assisted by dogs and heat sensors, in a bid to find survivors of the quake from three days ago.

U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Paul Earle noted the epicenters of the two quakes were 650 kilometres apart and said most aftershocks are within 100 kilometres. The team will also include search and rescue professionals, as well as support staff providing medical care and logistics. He said another 30 to 40 people remained trapped inside, while 11 children have been rescued so far.

"My mom is looking for him in hospitals because we don't trust those lists. I think what is killing us the most is the desperation of not knowing anything". He says family members there were still waiting for word of their relatives, who were trapped under the rubble.

"Since the quake, we've seen thousands of Community Help postings (currently over 10,000) with people offering and asking for volunteer work, transportation, shelter and food", spokesperson Jenna Stokes said in an email.
