Cozumel boats have bad day due to weather

Cozumel, Q.R. — Strong winds from a day of bad weather that passed through the region Tuesday left a Cozumel tour boat overturned.

A tour boat carrying eight passengers overturned in the rough seas in the reef area. Another nearby boat was quick to the rescue, plucking tourists and crew from the water.

The unexpected winds also resulted in three anchored boats beating against one another with owners rushing out to move them. The boats were anchored to a pier where the rough seas saw them dragged to shore where they were left to bang together.

Boat owners arrived to move them away from the shore, noting only minor damage. There were no injuries in either of the incidences.

Cozumel ports were closed for the duration of the day to smaller vessels.
