Cancun, Quintana Roo (July 14, 2020) .- Two American tourists were stranded as their inflatable boat suffered a malfunction when they were touring a canal in the Laguna Nichupté system, right in front of the Cancun Hotel Zone.
This happened around 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 14, when the emergency number received an alert from a foreign tourist saying that he and his partner were lost in the lagoon and could not return, so they sent their location via WhatsApp, activating all the emergency protocols to search for the lost.
Hours later, authorities managed to locate one of the stranded tourists who was immediately transferred to an area of the Tajamar Malecon where he was treated and assessed to transfer him to a private hospital, while the rescue team returned to the Nichupté Lagoon to try to locate the other missing tourist.
