Last night I checked my e-mail around 7:15 and saw a message saying that there had been a huge explosion just outside of our Mexico City office. There were rumors that it might have been a car bomb but no one knew for sure. All of our colleagues there were healthy and accounted for. That is a good thing.
This morning we get an update that the office will be closed today. I’m thinking that it must have been one heck of an explosion to keep our office closed. Then I click on the link provided. A freaking Lear jet crash landed in the middle of Mexico City carrying important government officials. A jet crashed only meters away from our office building there during rush hour. As of this morning they knew that everyone on the plane was dead but had no idea how many people in the cars that the jet landed on were dead as well.
Here’s a link to an article and some video of the aftermath. I’m betting that since it was a busy time of day, that the death toll will be going up.
