COZUMEL, Q. Roo — An American tourist on Cozumel was rushed to hospital because he was struck by a boat motor propeller, which he apparently approached when performing underwater activities.
At 10:25 a.m. Sunday Feb. 26, 911 received a call that reported that in Rafael E. Melgar Avenue at 5th Street South, near the pier of “Aqua Safari,” a boat had on board an injured person. A patrol of the Public Safety Directorate and an ambulance of the hyperbaric clinic came to the scene, where paramedics attended 79-year-old Hugh Solberg from Minnesota, USA, who had several injuries to his legs and right arm.
Solberg was transferred to a private clinic.
Francisco C.R., captain of the boat “The Oyster”, reported that the accident happened in the North Zone when the tourist was swimming close to the boat and the propeller struck him. (Source: Diario de Quintana Roo).
