Meet Frida, The Labrador Saving People After The Disastrous Earthquakes In Mexico

12 of those were people caught in the stronger earthquake that hit Oaxaca less than two weeks ago

A magnitude 7.1 earthquake rocked central Mexico on Tuesday, the 19th of September, so far leaving 230 casualties and thousands injured and trapped under rubble behind. The disaster came less than two weeks after another, more powerful quake left the southern state of Oaxaca in ruins.

A large-scale rescue operation to locate those trapped beneath the rubble is currently in progress, and one Labrador is playing an integral part in it. Working with SEMAR, the canine unit of the Mexican Navy, the brave rescue dog named Frida is currently hard at work searching for survivors. Equipped with her own personal protective gear, including customized boots and goggles, Frida has saved over 50 people in her short lifesaving career so far, a number of whom were rescued from the Oaxaca rubble.

The second earthquake struck in central Mexico, and both earthquakes seem to be a result of the rupture of fault lines within the North American tectonic plate, according to Behzad Fatahi from the University of Technology Sydney
