Nine people killed during tragic accident at a political rally in Mexico

Tragedy struck in Mexico on Wednesday night as strong winds toppled a stage during a political rally in San Pedro Garza García, Nuevo León, a state in the northeast part of the country. 

The rally was for Mexican presidential candidate Jorge Álvarez Máynez. Nine people, including a child, were killed, and at least 80 others were injured in the accident, according to a statement from Nuevo León Governor Samuel García.

“There are people reported trapped and injured,” Miguel Treviño, the mayor of San Pedro Garza García, said. “My prayers are with the victims.”

Video of the incident spread on social media, showing the stage collapsing and people screaming and running away in fear. Other videos showed people climbing out from being trapped underneath metal poles and beams that collapsed on them during the incident.
