A woman in Rosarito, Baja California seeks help to cross the border to collect the remains of her husband, who perished this week when he fell from the 14th floor of a building where he cleaned windows.

Mrs. Sarahí Ramírez explained to Chula Vista Today that she does not have a visa to cross the border in search of her spouse and does not know what she could do to recover the remains.

“I feel very sad for everything that has happened and more because I cannot claim it (in the United States); I just want to bring him to watch over him, I don't want more than that, "said the woman, who is pregnant with a baby, daughter of the man who died.

Sarahí said that Edy Guadalupe Cañedo Medina, 37, "just wanted her Mimi to be born to meet her and see her grow up."

According to a report from the San Diego Police Department (SDPD), Edy Guadalupe Cañedo fell from the Santa Teresa de Calcuta Villa building, located on the corner of 14th and Commercial Avenues in East Village.

The building is affordable housing multifamily managed by Father Joe’s Villages.

The worker fell from the 14th floor on Wednesday around noon. His wife said he had been working in San Diego for about seven years for Sky High Window Cleaning.

Sarahí Ramírez said that she might encounter additional obstacles in collecting her partner's remains because they were not legally married.

The San Diego police reported for their part that they are currently investigating the incident in which Edy Cañedo perished.
