Five telecom workers stranded in Concepcion, Chile, have been evacuated by Global Rescue security teams after the massive earthquake left the country’s second-largest urban area with destroyed infrastructure, low supplies of fuel and other staples, and a high security risk as looting and violence escalated.

Global Rescue teams dispatched a helicopter to pick up the workers and transported them to Santiago. From there they departed to their respective home cities.

Earlier, Global Rescue was tasked with finding the missing daughter of a client in Santiago.  Global Rescue operators located her within a few hours.
