Four fishermen were rescued after being stranded at sea for five days since Thursday December 22nd, following a shipwreck off the Yucatán coast. The men were found unharmed and in good physical health.
In a phone interview, the ship’s captain Manuel Osorno Escamilla, from Celestún, said that he and his crew were rescued by officers of the Mexican Navy (Secretaría de Marina) and received immediate medical attention.
On the evening of Tuesday December 27th, the men were taken to the port of Celestún and reunited with their family members, who spent the Christmas holidays praying for them to come back safe and sound.
The fishermen were identified as 30-year-old Jaime Jezael Rivas Chan, 17-year-old Reynaldo David Flores May, 17-year-old Daniel Hilario Solís Chan and 16-year-old Elías Andrés Chan Choch.
To survive for nearly 120 hours, the men rationed fresh water they had on board and their catch during the trip.
It is believed that their ship’s engine, which is owned by the Hul-Kin fishing company, broke down on them in open waters.
