Description

This story looks at the high number of Mexican-born workers that get killed working in heavy industries. The story focuses on Mexican workers that have fatal accidents almost four times more as compared to American workers. As the reporters found out many of these deaths was mainly due to the fact the Mexicans did not speak English or did not go into treatment since they were illegally in the country.
