Elements of the Naval Search, Rescue, and Maritime Surveillance Station at the Mexican Navy (Semar) performed a search operation for 19 bodies likely to be found under the sea after passing Hurricane Otis in Acapulco.
Loss The bodies are the caretakers of the yachts that, in front of the strong wind of more than 250 kilometers per hour, bound and sank with the boats.
To this day, the Command Logistics Center brings together various emergency forces from around the country, including divers. This rescue effort is led by Semar, which has a census of 604 recreational and tourist boats under the status of missing.
Of the 604 ships, 64 are located on the seabed in front of Acapulco Bay, and they may have one or more bodies.
According to Captain General Alejandro Alexander González, Navigation Officer of the Semar Port Captaincy, many logistics are being done to recover the boats and bodies that can be seen in them.
“The first action taken was a reconnaissance, a sweep of everything in the bay to see the situation in which we found ourselves in terms of small boats and in terms of bodies that can still be held there in some boats.”
This operation began on Monday with the report of 27 bodies missing, of which six have been found and saved—a job that requires hours of underwater searching.
The Captain of the General Corps Diplomate of the General Staff, Lucio Arturo de la Rosa Bosco, Coordinator of the Logistics Support Center for Rescuers, said that the underwater search was made up of members of the Advanced Naval Station, the First Company of Underwater Works, Station Naval Search, Rescue, and Maritime Surveillance (ENSAR), and divers from other rescue groups in the country.
Underwater works are carried out in the central sector, which includes the pier, boardwalk, area known as fishermen, Santa Lucía Marina, and Acapulco Yacht Club.
“We have seen many people tied to their boats and guarding the boat. It is a habit and custom that suddenly, when there is bad weather, people take shelter in their boats.
