    GUATEMALA CITY — As fire swept through the classroom, the pleas from the 56 girls locked inside began to fade.

    Most were unconscious or worse by then, as an eerie silence replaced their panic-stricken shouts.

    The police officers guarding the door — who had refused to unlock it despite the screams — waited nine minutes before stepping inside. They got water to cool down the scorching knob.

    Inside, dozens of girls placed in the care of the Guatemalan state lay sprawled on the blackened floor. Forty-one of them died.

    It was one of the deadliest tragedies in Guatemala since the end of its civil war decades ago, and it happened inside a group home for at-risk youth who had been put there by the government, supposedly for their own protection.

    This is something extra tragic. I can't even imagine going through this, let alone having to live with the fact that I was one of those police officers who waited and let 41 girls die in a fire.

    Forty... One... Girls. DEAD... out of 56. I can't even finish this commentary. The thought of this tragedy has me speechless... and for me, that's rare.

    Just Saying.

    Absolutely horrific :'( . I don't know how these police officers can live with themselves, after hearing these screams and failing to help them.

    My deepest condolences to the families of those who lost their lives. They deserve answers on how this was allowed to happen. It won't bring their daughters back, but it'll go some way towards preventing a repeat.
