Cuban Embassy in Panama assists migrants involved in accident


Cuban Embassy in Panama assists migrants involved in accident

Panama, Feb 15 (Prensa Latina) The Cuban Embassy in Panama is making efforts to provide assistance to possible compatriots who were involved in a tragic accident on Wednesday in the western province of Chiriqui.

The diplomatic note indicates that it is in constant communication with the competent authorities to identify the victims of Cuban nationality, and contact their relatives in Cuba and abroad. The statement adds that the Cuban Embassy will provide the required consular support and assistance to the nationals involved in this unfortunate event, as a result of which 33 people were killed and dozens were injured.

“As has been the tradition, Cuba advocates for a legal, safe and orderly migration that prevents damage and losses of human lives,” the press release concludes.

On early Wednesday, a bus that was transporting some 60 irregular travelers to a reception station in the town of Gualaca (Chiriqui) fell into a precipice.

According to preliminary reports, the driver would have passed the entrance to the migrant shelter, and when trying to return, turn and continue on the road, he fell into the void.

Ambulances arrived at the scene and began to transfer dozens of the injured to the Rafael Hernández Hospital in the capital city of David.

The transfers of travelers heading to the United States who cross the dangerous jungle of Darien on the border with Colombia on foot are constant and many are taken to the camp in Gualaca.
