Three American minors rescued from Cancun waters

Cancun, Q.R. — Three American children were saved from drowning on a public Cancun beach by the Navy of Mexico after help was requested.

The request for help came after the three minor children were seen experiencing difficulty returning to shore. The three children were found in the sea off the city’s popular Playa Delfines, which is known for its beautiful waters but strong currents.

In a statement, the federal agency said they carried out the rescue when a swimmer requested assistance from naval elements assigned to the aid station of Playa Delfines in Cancun, who indicated that three people were having problems getting out of the water.

Naval personnel rescued the three minors who were found in good health after receiving medical attention from Naval Health personnel. They were later returned to their relatives.

The Secretariat of the Navy of Mexico says the rescue was part of their Operation Summer Lifeguard 2019 for Cancun.
