Houston woman involved in train crash in Spain dies
A Houston woman injured in last week's deadly train crash in Spain has died, according to El Pais in Madrid.
Myrta Lasalle Fariza, 58, of Houston was traveling with her husband
Robert in car No. 7 when the train derailed and tumbled in the crash
Wednesday. The couple had just arrived in Santiago de Compostela to
participate in the Apostol celebration after visiting relatives in
Robert told El Pais earlier this week that he saw the car veering off
the rails and people rolling on the floor. Among them was his wife, who
he said suffered severed wounds to her head.
Myrta had been treated at Hospital Clinico Universitario de Santiago de Compostela.
Sunday, a message left on a Facebook page created by friends and family read:
"Our sweet Myrta went to be with The Lord. We have truly lost a
wonderful person and heaven has gained an Angel. I can picture her
sitting at our Lords feet praising his holy name. With the high cost of
communicating from another country, please refrain from calling or
texting at this time and keep the Fariza's in your prayers. They need
our support now more than ever."
