SINALOA.- Soldiers save a boy from being electrocuted in Escuinapa, Sinaloa.

“He’s still alive!” elements of the National Army are heard saying while trying to save a child who was receiving electric shocks from a power cable that fell after the effects of hurricane ” Roslyn ” in Sinaloa. The events were recorded in videos broadcast on social networks.

According to the report of the Secretary of National Defense ( Sedena ) the events occurred on October 23 in the Teacapan Union, municipality of Escuinapa, in Sinaloa.


The Sedena reported that during the reconnaissance carried out in the application of the DN-III-E Plan in the Teacapan Sindicatura , Mexican Army personnel located a minor lying in the middle of a public highway, with an electric cable in his hand.

In one of the videos it is observed that military personnel react to the emergency. “He’s still alive!” “A fucking dry stick, something, a lasso!” One of the uniformed men is heard shouting while the child was lying in the middle of a puddle of water with a power cable in his hand.
Seconds later, another soldier appears with pliers and one of his companions proceeds to cut the power cable.

In the background he hears a woman scream desperately.

Light still not restored; classes are still suspended in Escuinapa.

According to the report issued by the Federal Electricity Commission, category three hurricane Roslyn, which made landfall last Sunday morning, left 158,178 users in the states of Jalisco, Nayarit and Sinaloa without electricity.

The part affected by the fall of trees and therefore the wiring and poles in the state of Sinaloa, was concentrated in the southern municipality of Escuinapa, where the communities closest to the state of Nayarit still suffer from power outages.

In a brief statement issued, the educational unit specified that the suspension of classes in the morning shift continues in the La Concha syndicate and in the communities of La Ceiba, Copales, Las Pilas, Las Lomas and El Trébol, in Escuinapa.

The agency asked parents in these areas to keep an eye on the progress of the power supply restoration to determine if it is possible to return to face-to-face classes in the afternoon shift this Tuesday.
