Houston, Texas — Three Mexican nationals that set out to volunteer in the Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in Texas, have died.
Three of the volunteer rescue workers died in Houston after losing control of a boat they were in. The three men died when their boat collided with a high-voltage pole of cables. A fourth volunteer remains missing.
Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto used his Twitter account to express his condolences and praise the humanitarian work they carried out.
Aid workers from the Mexican Red Cross were sent from Mexico last week to help with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
