SEVEN people have died in a beer tank at the Corona brewery in Mexico City.
The deaths occurred yesterday morning in a tank that was undergoing maintenance and cleaning, a spokeswoman for owners Grupo Modelo said.
A company statement said: “Modelo is deeply sorry for this incident and will support the affected families permanently.”
The company did not give details of how the workers died. The family-controlled Mexican brewer, maker of the No 1 imported beer in the United States, is in the process of being sold to the Belgian-based brewer Anheuser-Busch InBev.
