How to help children with eye injuries in Mexico City

Mexico City — A hospital and a children’s hospital in Mexico are on lockdown following an attack that left one child with a life-threatening eye injury, the Mexican government said on Wednesday.

The hospital, in a southern part of the capital, was also locked down.

Two other children were injured by the car, the government said.

“There were several casualties from the attack,” a senior health official said, adding that the children were taken to the Children’s Hospital in Mexico’s central city of Mexico City.

In a statement, the health official identified the child as “Moya.”

The attack occurred on Wednesday afternoon when a car plowed into pedestrians in Mexico city’s Mexican capital, according to a news agency.

The driver fled the scene in a car and was later arrested, the news agency reported.

Authorities are searching for the driver, but did not give further details.
