On Friday, Mayor Culiacán Jesús Estrada Ferreiro accepted responsibility for the tragic death of Terrazas Del Val.
& # 39; I didn't know how open that part of the sidewalk was. I would have sent someone to fix it, & # 39; said Estrada Ferreiro.
& # 39; There was a complaint and although it was not answered correctly, I am responding to the legal consequences that have been made. I will not deny the responsibility that lies within the municipality of Culiacán & # 39;
Local architect Francisco Monarrez took the lead on Friday afternoon to ensure that the gaping hole was covered.
Monarrez paid $ 1500 Mexican peso, about $ 75, to buy the materials and good friends helped him place a temporary metal grid over the sewer.
