On Wednesday night, the 128 passengers of the tourist ship “Cabo Rey” lived minutes of anxiety when a leak was reported.
The Secretary of the Navy, as Coast Guard, announced that the 128 passengers of the tourist ship “Cabo Rey” were safely evacuated after a water leak was reported on Wednesday night, May 3. The captain of the vessel reported the situation and said that there was a water leak in the hull of the vessel that needed to be dealt with immediately.
Personnel from the Second Naval Zone, assisted by a smaller Defender-type vessel and an MLB boat, came to the rescue and disembarked the passengers three kilometers south of Cabo San Lucas. They were later taken to the Cabo San Lucas dock for medical attention.
It was reported that the waterway was fully controlled and the vessel was towed to the anchorage area of Cabo San Lucas Bay.
