The “Semana de Pascua” vacation period in Cozumel concluded with a deceased teenager, who died while saving his friend from drowning.
According to official information, the incident took place on Sunday April 12 at 2:20 pm on the site known as “Las Rocas”, in the island of Cozumel, Quintana Roo. Red Cross and CostaMed paramedics attended the place minutes later but it was to late to save the young man’s life.
The first victim had problems returning to the shore and started drowning, and in a desperate attempt to help him, one of his friends swam to the rescue, helped the child to get closer to the beach, but had difficulties on returning to shore and finally drowned.
The victims were pulled out of the water by local lifeguards, but when the second one was being transported to the shore he suffered a cardiac arrest.
Minutes later a Red Cross ambulance arrived to the scene and transported the victims to a private hospital, where one of the boys was officially pronounced dead.
