In a matter of minutes, municipal and paramedical agents arrived from the Ministry of Public Safety who applied CPR and were able to perceive vital signs, so they transferred the child to the IMSS clinic Ignacio García Téllez (aka T1) but unfortunately, he was officially pronounced dead minutes later.
