Death toll is expected to rise after a 7.1 magnitude earthquake strikes 120km from Mexico City, collapsing buildings and killing more than 139 people

As night falls in Mexico and rescuers continue to look for survivors, the civil defence agency has raised the confirmed number of earthquake fatalities to 139.
Luis Felipe Puente, the head of the agency, said the highest death toll was in the state of Morelas, where at least 64 people have died.

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.

Everyone escaped the structure unscathed. Salazar credited the earthquake drill two hours earlier with preventing a chaotic situation.

The death toll has risen to 94, with at least 30 dead in Mexico City alone.
Between 50 and 60 people have been pulled alive from rubble, according to Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera, who said at least 44 buildings collapsed.

Lakhani said huge buildings had collapsed in La Condesa, and the army had arrived.
