Mexican navy rescues four off coast of Mahahual

Mahahual, Q.R. — Four people needed rescuing by Mexican navy personnel after their boat failed nearly 20 kilometers offshore.

La Secretaría de Marina–Armada de México made the rescue Saturday approximately 10 nautical miles or 18.5 kilometers off the coast of Mahahual. Four people were left stranded on a small fishing boat after the motor gave way.

The four, who were aboard Rosy, lost use of their propellers and began drifting. An Emergency 911 call alerted marine personnel who set sail in search of Rosy.

The boat was spotted with all four Mexican nationals on board. They, along with their vessel, were transferred to a Mahahual wharf.

All were reported to be in good health.
