MEXICO CITY, Mexico — A mudslide in rain-soaked Mexico late Tuesday killed at least three people, two of them children, the government-run news agency said Wednesday.
The incident happened in the town of Magdalena Contreras, near Mexico City, the Notimex news agency reported. A drenched hill collapsed on some haphazardly built homes, the news service said.
The mudslide, which was the size of nearly two football fields, damaged several homes and destroyed one. The home that was destroyed was also struck by a tree that stood more than 30 feet high, Notimex said.
Two girls, 6 and 11 years old, and an adult male were inside the house and were killed, Notimex said.
