The Ministry of Public Security of Mexico City (SSPDF) reported that on Friday June 5th, relatives of the 49 children who died during the fire at the ABC daycare in the city of Hermosillo, Sonora carried out a march along Paseo de la Reforma, from the Angel of Independence to the Zócalo.
The demonstration is to commemorate the sixth anniversary of the ABC child care center fire, occurred in Hermosillo, Sonora, on June 5, 2009.
On the day of the fire, an estimated 148 children and six adult caregivers were inside the building.
The tragedy started at 3pm on Friday, June 5, 2009. It was initially reported that the fire began in a tire warehouse next door and then spread to the child care center. Further investigation revealed that the actual source was a different warehouse (also next door to the day care), one operated by the state government.
Within just a few minutes the fire caused the collapse of a roof section which fell on the children, infants and employees below. One of the first responders on the scene reported that all children were unconscious or dead and there were no sounds of children crying.
Firefighters took two hours to contain the blaze.
In the end, 49 children aged 3 or younger died during or following the blaze and more than 70 toddlers were seriously injured.
Mothers and relatives of these inocent victims claim that “six years have passed, and nobody has been held responsible for this tragic event, no detentions, no arrests, no justice“.
