The rough sea caused a wave to impact the boat, and the water entered the engine room, which caused the sinking of the ship, which was about 400 meters offshore. A group of ships that were in the vicinity came to the rescue of the tourists and crew members, who were wearing life jackets, according to videos that were broadcast on social networks.
The State Unit for Civil Protection and Firefighters of Jalisco had warned that “some beaches of Puerto Vallarta have strong waves, unfavorable conditions for entering the sea, attend to the recommendations of the authorities.”
