GUATEMALA.- Alrededor de 1.400 personas podrían haber muerto en Guatemala despuès de que el municipio de Panabaj quedara sepultado tras un alud de lodo de 12 metros de espesor provocado por las fuertes lluvias descargadas por el huracán 'Stan'. De momento han sido recuperados 71 cuerpos. En el resto del país se contabiliza ya medio millar de víctimas mortales.


"Aquí no hay supervivientes, ya han pasado más de 48 horas, están muertos", declaró el portavoz de los bomberos que trabajan en Panabaj, Mario Cruz. Sin embargo, hasta el momento sólo se han recuperado 71 cadáveres, entre ellos los de 30 niños.

Entre 3.000 y 4.000 personas lograron escapar antes de que todo quedara enterrado bajo una pared de lodo, pero se cree que bajo las toneladas de lodo quedaron soterradas unas 800 personas. Los socorristas calculan que pueden ser hasta 3.000.

En el lugar existían 1.500 casas que estaban habitadas por unas 4.000 personas y que ahora está ocupado por toneladas de lodo.
