Monica Orta Ramírez died Tuesday in the intensive care unit of the Hospital General de Balbuena.  Orta had been a nurse at the Hospital Materno Infantil de Cuajimalpa, which was destroyed last Friday by a gas explosion.  Refusing to flee, she stayed in the burning hospital to assist in evacuating babies and hospital employees. She received burns over 80 percent of her body.

The 32-year old mother of three was buried yesterday.
