The death toll in a pipeline fire at a distribution plant near the U.S. border has risen to 29, Mexico's state-owned oil company said Wednesday. At least 46 others were injured, and more might be missing.
This incident has occurred very recently and it shows us that not all the work locations in other countries are up to par with the building codes. This sad incident has cost lives and has set back the company because now they will have to rebuild, make sure its safe for the worker, and it will create loss for the company and for the workers who were not injured.
Since its not proven to be a sabotage but rather and accidental leak the company could potentially risk a lawsuit. Lines affected could have led into McAllen, TX and this is rather important because we can not assume that the catastrophe of neighboring countries will never affect us. -Michelle Carvajal-
