The Secretariat of the Navy-Navy of Mexico reported that its personnel rescued nine people who were left adrift due to lack of fuel, 12 nautical miles (22.22 kilometers), approximately, from Isla Contoy, Quintana Roo.
In a statement, the federal agency explained that it carried out this action after receiving a phone call from the Command and Control Center of the Navy of Mexico, informing that a yacht named “PATOS” from Florida, United States, during its trip to Isla Mujeres, Quintana Roo, ran out of fuel with nine crew members aboard including a Mexican nationality.
In response, he immediately ordered the departure of a MLB-type vessel from the Naval Search, Rescue and Maritime Surveillance Station (Ensar) of Isla Mujeres, which located the yacht to later provide towing support to the dock of this Naval Command.
Once they arrived at a safe harbor, the crew members were received by Naval Health personnel who performed a medical examination, finding them in good health and allowing them to retire by their own means.
