A young man who participated in the caravan of migrants died today falling from the trailer in which was mounted on the journey between Tapachula and Huixtla, in the state of Chiapas (southeast of Mexico), according to Efe.
A member of Amnesty International (AI) explained that the boy, whose identity and nationality are unknown, lost his life after falling from the truck in which he was traveling.
The corpse, covered with a blanket of only pants and a pool of blood, was guarded by members of security forces, such as the Federal Police, and civil organizations.
During the caravan, many trucks and vans offer free passage to some of the thousands of Central Americans, mostly Hondurans, who seek to reach the United States, a dangerous journey of thousands of kilometers.
According to the shelter for migrants from the Mexican municipality of Suchiate, bordering Guatemala, 7,125 people from the caravan entered the national territory, including 1,500 women and 2,400 minors.
On the other hand, official sources indicated that six people, apparently Guatemalan, died last night when they overturned a truck carrying more than 40 migrants near the community of Rancho Nuevo, in Chiapas.
Eleven other people, including four children, were injured and are being treated in hospitals in the area.
The sources did not specify if these migrants were part of the caravan.
The southern border of Mexico is constantly crossed by emigrants coming mainly from Central America, but also from South America.
