Mexico earthquake kills baby fighting for life in hospital as massive 8.1-magnitude tremor cuts power

A baby fighting for life at a children’s hospital in Mexico died after a massive 8.1-magnitude earthquake caused the child’s ventilator to fail.

At least five people were killed and a tsunami was triggered after a massive tremor struck near the border of Mexico and Guatemala just before midnight on Thursday.

The quake caused widespread power outages and as a 0.7-metre wave hit the country, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre confirmed more hazardous tsunamis were possible within three hours.

The death toll includes two children in Tabasco state.

Tabasco Govenor Arturo Nunez said one of the children died when a wall collapsed, and the other was a baby who died in a children’s hospital that lost electricity, cutting off the supply to the infant’s ventilator.

The other three deaths were in Chiapas state, in San Cristobal de las Casas.
