International News: Landslide in Colombia kills 23 people

Posted: Saturday, January 13, 2024. 11:03 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Officials in Colombia say that a landslide on the road connecting Medellin and Quibdo has killed 23 people and injured about 30 more.

According to BBC, the road had been closed by several landslides, so many people stopped their cars to take shelter in a house near the community of Carmen de Atrato and then another landslide struck burying them and their vehicles.

The Mayor indicated that some people were still trapped by the debris.

“Unfortunately a landslide came and buried them,” the official said.

First responders gathered at the scene in an attempt to rescue the survivors.

Colombian President Gustavo Preto has pledged “all help available” to the Choco region.
