Bertha Ruiz Vázquez, a 20-year-old Cuban girl, received a bullet in the face last Saturday that has her between life and death.

“The Vázquez family still does not understand why Bertha was shot. They say that everything happened just three blocks from her house this Saturday morning while she was waiting for the bus near Northwest 115th Street and 12th Avenue in the sector of Pinewood”, indicates a report by the Telemundo network.

According to the information provided by the relatives, the young woman left that day to go to the beach and her uncle did not understand why the location of the phone remained nearby. When they left the house, it was full of policemen.

Miami-Dade Police officers said they were called to the scene about a woman lying on the ground in a pool of blood.

When they arrived, they found Vázquez with a bullet wound to the face, who was immediately transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

“The condition is critical, he is in intensive care, stable but critical… the bullet went through the jaw and affected the entire cervical part… you can’t touch it, it’s critical,” explained Adnier Vazquez, the young woman’s uncle.

Bertha turned 20 last September. She arrived in the United States just two months ago with her mother, after crossing several borders.

We left Cuba to “give my daughter a better future and look what I’ve taken with me now (…) A very pretty, well-educated girl and I lost her like that out of the blue,” explains her mother Arletys Vazquez.

“My girl didn’t even know herself here, nor did she owe anyone anything… I just want justice for my daughter, if someone saw what happened or something like that and has the initiative to tell or say it, so that other families don’t go through what they I pass today ”, he adds.
