Migrant accident in Chiapas: first bodies of deceased return

The bodies of the first four Guatemalans who died in a road accident on December 9 in Chiapas, Mexico, arrived on the night of December 18 on national soil, without the Foreign Ministry having so far revealed the place of origin of the fatalities and their identities.

Unofficially it is known that one is from El Tejar, Chimaltenango, and another from Sololá.

The flight in which the victims of the fatal accident arrived, who were traveling in a van with a hundred migrants, was delayed for about two hours and landed at the Air Force facilities shortly before 11:30 p.m.

The trailer carrying migrants hit the wall of the pedestrian bridge during its journey through Chiapas, presumably because the driver lost control due to speeding.

Mexico is experiencing one of the largest migratory waves in its history. From January to October, the country has intercepted 228,115 people and deported another 82,627, figures that had not been seen for more than 15 years.

Likewise, refugee applications have also broken records. From January to October, the country has received 108,195 petitions.
