David Agren reports from Mexico City:
Mexicans in the Condesa neighbourhood brought buckets and formed lines to carry away rubble from a badly damaged building. Many arrived in work clothes, anxious to pitch in. Others arrived with bottles of water and pop to refresh the volunteers. Still more made sandwiches to feed them, while others donated masks to prevent dust inhalation.
The outpouring of solidarity was reminiscent of how many ordinary Mexicans heroically helped out after the 1985 quake - although back then the government’s response was lacking and people were forced to fend for themselves.
