Four dead and some 22 others injured in collapse of new Mexican cathedral

At least three people have died and some 22 others seriously injured in the collapse of a new cathedral under construction in Tuxtepec, southern Mexican state of Oaxaca.

According to reports, some four additional others are still missing and are thought to be buried under debris, all of them workers at the construction site.

Officials have been unable to explain what caused the 80-foot (25-meter) tall scaffolding to crash down. The collapse took place on March 3 in the city of San Juan Bautista Tuxtepec, 275 miles southeast of Mexico City.

The Mexican bishops’ conference released an official statement expressing their ‘enormous sadness’ over the disaster and also expressed their solidarity with those affected.

According to a statement released by the Diocese of Tuxtepec signed by Bishop José González Juárez, “the bishops sent “prayers for the deceased and most heartfelt condolences for their families, to whom we express our solidarity and unconditional support at this time of grief.”
