The Internet Loves Frida The Rescue Dog Trying To Save People Buried From The Mexico City Earthquake
The death toll to Tuesday’s horrific 7.1 magnitude earthquake that smashed Mexico City continues to rise and the latest tally said there were 273 casualties. The outpouring of strength and resilience to find any and all survivors have been tremendous. Included in the tireless rescue effort includes one very, very good girl – a rescue dog named Frida.
Frida, a Labrador retriever who is named after painter Frida Kahlo, serves in the Mexican navy (SEMAR). The canine rescuer has served her country magnificently, especially in recent times when natural disasters have devastated Mexico. Earlier this month, Frida bravely ventured into decimated buildings in Oaxaca after a powerful 8.1 magnitude quake destroyed the area. Frida is now in Mexico City helping to find survivors who are trapped in debris from the collapsed structures. Frida is an international star and has been deployed across Central and North America, where she has participated in rescue missions in Haiti, Ecuador, and Honduras following natural disasters.
