Eight Canadian tourists were rescued this Sunday from drowning in the sea at Brujas beach, near El Yugo estuary and a hotel on Sábalo Cerrito's avenue in Mazatlán, Sinaloa.
This emergency occurred at 16:00 hours. Although at first, they said that there were four or five people rescued and of American origin, in the evening the Municipal Public Safety Secretariat reported that there were eight people rescued, all Canadians: Dakota "N", Carson "N", Alexis "N", Keira "N", Dana "N", Nico "N", Ashlee "N" and Laney "N".
SSPTM added that only Laney showed signs of feeling very ill and was transported to a hospital. In the area, it was possible to see three ambulances, one from the Red Cross and two from private hospitals, whose paramedics came to attend to those affected.
Playa Brujas is considered by many a dangerous area due to its strong waves and currents. Several red "danger" flags were posted at the site, among hundreds of people enjoying the sea and the sun.
