In a shocking incident that unfolded in the Valle del Ejido neighborhood of Mazatlan, Sinaloa, chaos erupted at a local slot machine business. A man, armed with a menacing machete, ruthlessly severed three fingers from the hand of Fernando, a 30-year-old avid gambler immersed in the thrill of the game. As chaos ensued, Fernando was rushed to a nearby hospital under the care of the Mexican Social Security Institute. The audacious attacker, shrouded in mystery, had suddenly materialized, brandishing his machete and blaming Fernando for spotting him beneath his very own car. It remains a mystery what led to this bizarre act of violence.
On a more positive note, the Chihuahua and Sinaloa Ministries of Tourism have come together to present a delightful surprise for travel enthusiasts. The grand unveiling took place in the state capital, where they proudly announced a new commercial flight route connecting Juarez and Mazatlan. With Viva Aerobus taking the helm, travelers can now jet off with ease, as three departures per week promise to facilitate seamless journeys between these captivating cities. The inaugural flight gracefully landed at the border, graced by the presence of a distinguished Sinaloa delegation comprising state officials, tour operators, hotel and restaurant owners, and the radiant queens of the Mazatlan Festival in the 2020 and 2018 editions, Libia Gavica and Sofia Briseño, respectively.
