Mexican children hurt in pipeline explosion treated at Texas Shriners

One would hope only the bad guys were killed in this explosion—unfortunately most were innocents including children.  Children are being triaged to determine which will be sent to Texas Shriners.  You can help by making a donation to Shriners, a 501C3 nonprofit, state of the art facility.Shriners Hospitals for Children attains highly coveted 4-Star Charity Navigator rating.  Rating showcases organization’s commitment to transparency and fiscal responsibility


A Galveston hospital will be treating patients who were burned in a deadly pipeline explosion Friday in a small town in Mexico.

A spokesman for Shriners Hospital for Children in Galveston confirmed that the hospital would be receiving patients injured in the massive fireball that has so far killed at least 73 people and injured 74 others.

"We are in communication with the Consulate General of Mexico in Houston and with the Michou y Mau Foundation in Mexico regarding the victims of this explosion," said Mel Bower, a spokesman for Shriners Hospital for Children. "Hospitals in Mexico are triaging and treating the children and adults burned in this accident. Shriners Hospitals for Children will be receiving patients who need our care."

Fuel theft gangs have reportedly drilled illegal taps into oil pipelines 12,581 times in the first 10 months of 2018, an average of about 42 per day. Mexico President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said that fuel thieves have stolen more than $3 billion worth of fuel in the last year to sell on the black market.

Shriners Hospital for Children has ample experience treating international burn victims. In June, the hospital airlifted seven severely burned patients from a volcano explosion in Guatemala that would benefit from its state-of-the-art facility in Galveston.

    8. Shriners are 'do gooders' around the world.I think their specialty that they support are children's causes especially the medical.

    9. @9:52 The US wasted $1 trillion dollars of your taxpayer dollars on an imbecilic war. I'd rather my taxes help some needy Mexican kids than swine-skin US defense swindlers.

  6. Seriously burned victims need very specialized staff, procedures, and facilities... and these are not available just anywhere. Plus, victims often die from secondary complications (like kidney failure) and not the burns directly.
    I am proud of the USA extending its specialized resources to burn victims ... especially if they are children.

    P.S. Many years ago I was a surgical orderly and saw a young mother die from burns to her lungs. This mother had gone to light her oven, but it was full of gas and exploded. Hot gasses seared her lungs. She looked fine externally (singed hair, superficial burns to face). The doctors and nurses went all out to save her. She lived from about 4 P.M. to 1 A.M. with her internal burns. I will never forget her and think of her when I it involves burn victims.

    IMO, the USA "should" do everything possible for these burn victims.

  7. Burns are the worst. Good on the USA for extending aid to the injured. We can set aside wall discussion for the moment and worry about children, innocents and their health.
    Border security and helping those in need of specialized medical assistance are separate issues.

  8. Very unfortunate incident....but WHEN will Mexico take care if it’s OWN problems?? Whether it is violence, cartels or fuel theft...Mexican government has sat back, done very little and then when things explode....like in this situation...they want help.

  9. I think it’s more than great they can help! As a Mexican American veteran it makes me proud. Unfortunately, we don’t have a whole lot of pride these days.

  10. God’s given mercy is for children to be taken care of. No matter of race color or creed. These are totally innocent victims and deserve every chance in life in their childhood. Their activities are to play like children and have fun. Children should NEVER be included in criminal activities. Children are our joys in life, what we live for, they are our future, we are not theirs. Things have got to change in Mexico, things have got to change.

  11. Dios mio. Ninos are totally exempt from the sins of stupid adults. It is the adults who bear responsibility for this horror. I have few fears of things but the idea of something happening to my nietas makes me knees shake. Mexico prensa has a big responsibility I feel to closely follow in fotos and words the struggles of these burned ninos. Show Mexico how stupid greed has destroyed the lives of children. "YOU! huachicol! You caused this! You! Empleados de Petroleos Mexicanos! You! Gasolinistas! You are responsible for this. How does the photos and the cries of the ninos make you feel, eh? I am too sad and too sick to continue.

  16. I'm glad they are helping the children, but gotta wonder what a bad decision it is to bring kids to the free gas event. Probably need them to carry extra containers, but very volatile as it proved to be.
