A 63-year-old Canadian resident of Jalisco is dead following a boating accident this week on Lake Chapala.
The body of Zane William Bennett was recovered Tuesday May 19th, by searchers looking for the sailboat in which Bennett and two other men had departed on Monday afternoon. Family members reported to Civil Protection Tuesday morning that the three had failed to return from their trip.
Searchers have not been able to find another Canadian, John Danielkiewicz, and American John Robin Champagne, who departed with Bennett from the Playa Azul restaurant near San Juan Cosalá.
The boat was discovered aground west of Ajijic and Bennettt’s body was found in the water nearby shortly after. He and his companions were reported to have lived in the area for some time and were accustomed to going sailing.
Chapala firefighters said strong, gusty winds and the age of the boat may have contributed to the accident. Fire chief Lorenzo Antonio Salazar Guerrero said winds come up regularly in the afternoons and owing to those conditions the vessel probably overturned.
The vessel had a broken mast when it was found.
