Mexican church roof collapses during Sunday mass killing 9, about 30 others missing

A church roof collapsed during Sunday mass in Ciudad Madero, Mexico, resulting in the death of at least nine people and injuring 40 others. Rescue teams and volunteers worked tirelessly to search for approximately 30 individuals who were believed to be trapped under the debris. The rescue operation continued throughout the night, with military personnel, rescue dogs, and heavy machinery being utilized to locate and extract survivors from the wreckage. Videos shared on social media captured the moment when the church roof gave way, accompanied by clouds of gray smoke and the collapse of the yellow brick outer walls. As of now, nine fatalities have been confirmed, 40 injured individuals have been transported to nearby hospitals, and 30 worshippers remain unaccounted for. Jorge Cuéllar, spokesperson for the Security Ministry of Tamaulipas state, expressed gratitude to local businessmen who provided equipment to assist in the rescue efforts. Bishop Jose Armando Alvarez from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Tampico requested prayers for the survivors, stating that the roof collapsed while worshippers were receiving communion. In a recorded message shared on social media, Bishop Armando assured that every effort was being made to rescue those still trapped under the rubble.
