The Central Mexico earthquake came a week after a magnitude of 8.1 earthquake struck off on the Southern Coast of the country, killing around 90 of them.
Thousands of soldiers, rescuers and civilians including some of the college students were working side by side to dig through the piles of the buildings from the dozens of them that have collapsed.
The earthquake has left the busiest city in Mexico in chaos. Windows collapsed and shattered, falling several stories to the ground while thousands of people gushed into the streets running away from buildings and gas leaks.
People were to be struggling to get home when power poles that tumbled in the quake blocked the streets and the public transportation system by temporarily shut down operations. Around 5 million customers were still without power early Wednesday.
