Thousands of rescue workers and volunteers worked through the night searching for survivors under collapsed buildings in Mexico City after a powerful earthquake hit the region on Tuesday afternoon, September 19.
Over 200 people, including children, were reported to have died in the 7.1-magnitude quake that toppled dozens of buildings throughout the Mexican capital. Among them was a school in the south of the city where at least 22 pupils died.
