This Thursday afternoon, a person was rescued by civilians when he was drowning in Chicxulub Puerto.

According to the report, the man, about 40 years old, jumped into the sea from the pier, however, not knowing how to swim, he began to drown.

But he did not count on the strong winds from the south and high waves, so the sea currents began to drag him into the sea, but other people there on the beach came to help the man, managed to rescue him, and take him to shore safely.

Meanwhile, witnesses reported the case to 911, and minutes later, police officers and paramedics from the Ministry of Public Security arrived, who managed to stabilize him.
