The tremors - possibly aftershocks from a massive 8.2-magnitude quake that hit southern Mexico two weeks ago - forced rescue workers in the capital to pause their efforts for a couple of hours. At least 115 people have been rescued since last week's natural disaster, and many of them remain in hospitals, where they receive treatment in hopes of recovering from severe brain injuries, fractures, and bruises. CNN footage showed them walking to a more stable ground after warning sirens sounded.

Some 70 people have been pulled from the rubble, and rescue efforts were continuing despite fading hopes for buried survivors, Mexican civil defence agency chief Luis Felipe Puente said. However, they do their best to support each other during such hard moments. Rescuers are trying to access a part of the wreckage where they believe there may be a survivor and introduce a camera to check.
