The victims’ names are Daniela Ayón Razo and Dora Isela Salas Vázquez, while Carlos Milla Masana, whose name was on the Mexican passengers list was confirmed to be a Spaniard married to a Mexican woman from the state of Hidalgo.
On a statement, the authorities affirmed that the search for the bodies on the site of the accident will continue. Once the bodies (or the remains) are found, they will be identified with a DNA test, delivered to their families and returned to their country of origin.
