First 3 year old, now mother dies from fire burns

There is another tragedy the Cabrera family of San Narciso is enduring. Earlier this month we told you about the tragic death of three year old Danely Cabrera during a fire at her house in the village. Her mother, Ramona Cabrera and the neighbors could not save the child’s life as the wooden structure was quickly engulfed in flames and burnt to the ground. Ramona received first degree burns to her face and back, and second degree burns to her left and right arm while trying to pull a burning mattress out of the house. The tragic news is that Ramona succumbed to her injuries on Monday morning while undergoing treatment at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. Following the fire, Ramona’s sister, Avelina, said that Ramona was sleeping on the bed along with three year old Danely when she felt her arm on fire. She told the child to go outside but Danely instead hid under her crib where she perished.
