The Quintana Roo Attorney General’s Office does not rule out including more responsible people.

As posted on The Yucatan Times, on Monday, January 29th, four tourists died during a ship wreckage at sea off the coast of Isla Mujeres.

The “Goddess of the Sea” boat that sank between Puerto Juárez and Isla Mujeres, causing the death of four Mexican tourists, including a minor, was overloaded with passengers and did not have enough life jackets, according to the first versions.

The State Attorney General’s Office confirmed that the captain of the Tiburonera-type vessel, Ramón CM, is so far the only person who is detained, but it is not ruled out that more responsible persons may be included.

According to the data, there were 17 Mexican tourists on board the boat, in addition to the captain and his assistant, although the capacity was 16 people. Official versions indicate that there were only 15 life jackets on board.

The result of the accident is four people dead, including a minor under 10 years old, whose identities are still kept confidential by the authorities.

According to the information, the captain, identified as Ramón CM, left at 2:50 p.m. for Isla Mujeres and, upon returning at 6:30 p.m., the tragic event occurred.

For his part, Francisco Fernández Millán, president of the Nautical Associates of Quintana Roo, explained that, although the boat had its papers to operate, it is pending to know if it had the necessary safety equipment, whose surveillance is in charge of the Port Captaincy.

He explained that the port was open to navigation and winds of 28 kilometers per hour were reported at that time.

So far, the Harbor Master’s Office has not issued any information related to the tragic accident that claimed the lives of four people.

Back in 2021, another vessel sank on the same route. On that occasion, three people perished.
