Three found dead off-roading at Laguna Salada, Baja Mexico

Three found dead of heat exposure in Mexicali Desert Baja Mexico

Three people were found dead near a Jeep Cherokee that was off-road driving near Laguna Salada, Baja Mexico yesterday. Temperatures in the area had reached 112 degrees with an estimated heat index of 133 degrees.

After a search operation began at dawn, municipal and ministerial teams found the sun burned bodies of Yaneth Rodriguez, Jesus Valdez and his son's friend Arnold Acevedo, in a very hot section of the Laguna Salada, near Mexicali. Yesterday, teams found the Jeep Cherokee, buried to its driving hubs.

Rescue teams, a contingent of police officers and elements of the rescue group Aguiluchos and rescue dogs, began a tour type "comb" with a distance of ten meters between each other, to a group of bushes below which found the bodies of two adult, male, female and a juvenile male. For the status of the bodies could not reliably determine the identities, so they will have to wait the conclusion of the forensic expert to confirm the dead identities.
