At least 68 people have been pronounced dead following a fire that hit the cells of a police station in Venezuela on Wednesday. To make this terrible incident even worse, families of the victims demanded answers from authorities, which they didn’t receive. So, it sparked backlash over lack of information.
One woman, Aida Parra was heard screaming:
“I don’t know if my son is dead or alive! They haven’t told me anything.”
Parra saw her son a day before, when brought him food.
It got so bad that officers used tear gas on the relatives of the victims.
