    So terrible. God bless those sweet, helpless babies, nurses, doctors, staff and families. How tragic. I hope the ones that died didn't suffer and that it happened instantly.

    Mayor says 2 dead in maternity hospital blast

    Thursday's gas explosion at a Mexico maternity hospital claimed two lives, Mexico City's mayor said, correcting earlier official statements claiming a higher death toll.

    A mix-up between the number of those deceased and those seriously injured led to the incorrect reports,
    Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera said.

    One of the fatalities was a woman, the other a child,
    said Adrian Rubalcava, the government chief in the district where the hospital is located.

    Still, there are fears that more babies and adults may be trapped in the debris of the hospital,
    which was on the verge of collapsing after the explosion, according to government and emergency officials.

    Some 37 injuries
    have been reported, according to Mexico City's Civil Protection agency.
