MEXICO CITY — The U.S. Embassy in Mexico said Tuesday a member of the U.S. diplomatic mission has died after a climbing mishap on Mexico’s Pico de Orizaba mountain.
Members of a diplomatic mission can include embassy employees, their families and some support personnel. The embassy did not specify whether or in what rank the climbers were employed, nor did it release their names or hometowns because of privacy concerns.
But the embassy said in a statement that “we are extremely grateful to the Government of Mexico for its prompt assistance in the operation to rescue two U.S. citizen climbers.”
