Four people died at DaimlerChrysler AG’s Mexico City plant yesterday after inhaling toxic fumes. The plant was not running at the time and is scheduled to close permanently. The workers, employed by a local cleaning company, were between the ages of 25 and 30 and were cleaning a cistern when they inhaled the harmful fumes. DC’s Mexican unit says it is awaiting results of an investigation before it comments on the safety measures in place at the facility.
