Baja & Border News Translations: 4 Students Saved from Heatstroke; 6000 New Jobs in Tijuana
4 Youths Saved from Heat Stroke by Tijuana Fire Crew (Uniradio Informa, 9/13/12)
Four Unifront secondary school students fainted during a celebration of the 165th Anniversary of the Chapultepec Castle Defense by Child Heroes and were attended to by firefighters from Tijuana, Captain Gabriel Miranda, reported.
"Some had breakfast, others did not and felt a little sick, we helped the children. Fortunately we got them oxygen, attended to them and they are already well. Right now they are resting out of the Sun. It was nothing more than too much Sun", he explained. He mentioned fainting usually occurs at such events and added it is very common at large events.
"There was hunger and dizziness, but they have already returned to themselves again... children do not eat, the Sun's rays are direct", he commented.
Pedro Ruvalcaba, one of the affected students, said: "Sunstroke got me. It really got me.” http://www.uniradioinforma.com/noticias/tijuana/articulo144662.html
6,000 People Hired in Tijuana Last 3 Months (Uniradio Informa, 9/13/12)
The Association of Human Resources for Industry in Tijuana (ARHITAC) estimated more than 6000 workers were hired in Tijuana, said Noe Morales, Coordinator of New Employment. Data indicated 6,200 new jobs were generated this quarter from a survey of 87 ARHITAC companies,
"We are talking about workers, people who are in line production, managers and operators mainly. Many companies were surveyed and many answered the survey. It wasn't 100 per cent of the population but the data is still important," he stressed.
Two years ago the same survey only counted a thousand people, so we are registering a significant increase, I think”, said the Coordinator of New Employment in Tijuana. http://www.uniradioinforma.com/noticias/tijuana/articulo144686.html
