Cartel Violence: Red Cross in Mexico no longer treating gunshot victims
Even the Red Cross isn't safe from the vicious fighting across the border.
Clinics in Mexico are now refusing to accept victims with gun shot wounds out of fear of violence.
This after gunmen shot up an ambulance in Tampico, Tamaulipas only two blocks away from a Red Cross clinic.
In a separate incident on Sunday, a Red Cross volunteer was shot and killed during a gunfight in Sinaloa.
Twenty-year-old Maria Rogers was killed Sunday by a stray bullet when gunmen went into a red cross hospital trying to finish off a man who had been shot minutes earlier in a gunfight.
The man survived.
Rogers is the first Red Cross employee to be killed in the drug violence since President Felipe Calderon declared war on the cartels.
