Costa Rica News – Two foreign neurologists are scheduled to arrive in Mexico next week to perform a second examination on Aldo Gutierrez, an education student who has been in a coma since he and several classmates were shot in Iguala, a city in the southern state of Guerrero, in September 2014, the Executive Commission for Assisting Victims, or CEAV, said.
The experts will try to determine the chances for recovery of Gutierrez, who was shot in the head by police officers who attacked a group of Ayotzinapa Rural Normal School students on Sept. 26, 2014.
Gutierrez, who is being treated at a public hospital in Mexico City, “has severe neurological damage” from the gunshot, the CEAV said.
Six people, including three education students, died that night, 25 were wounded and 43 students were detained by police and then handed over to members of the Guerreros Unidos drug cartel.
Gutierrez’s parents met with his Mexican doctors and an agreement was reached under which the government “would be responsible for arranging for the services of medical specialists identified by the family,” the CEAV said.
The CEAV is a public agency created in January 2014 to assist the victims of federal crimes and human rights violations. EFE
