Bodies found with the help of a drone
The body of Pablo was found 200m. from where he drowned along with his brother in the Rio Presidio just south of Mazatlan.
Early this morning rescue teams arrived from the “Escuadron Acuatico” “Grupo Cobra Villa Union” and “Proteccion Civil” to the scene at the Rio Presidio to continue the search for the missing Pablo. The Rescue teams were able to find young Pablo’s body floating just 200m. from where he had disappeared.
According to authorities the search began at 6:00 am yesterday. It wasn’t until “Proteccion Civil” arrived on the scene that they were able to locate the body of Pablo with the help of a drone. The teams used a kayak to recover the body from the river. Investigating Officers in Charge of the case rushed to gather evidence before taking the body to Semefo where his brother’s remains are located. Unfortunately, his brother Adfolfo also drowned in the Presidio river.
What Exactly Happened?
This past Sunday afternoon, the brothers disappeared while trying to rescue some minors that were being dragged by the currents. Pablo himself was dragged by the current and Adolfo tried to save him. Both brothers disappeared in the water. The same afternoon rescue teams found the lifeless body of Adolfo.
The “Comandante del Escuadron Municipal”, Gonzalo Magallanes said that due to the remote location it is often difficult to provide immediate relief to people bathing in the popular spot. He warned the public to always enter these places with due caution and to always take the safest measures possible. The coordinator of “Proteccion Civil”, Eloy Ruiz laments the loss of the two brothers as they were neighbors in the colonia Urbi Villas. The coordinator recommends to citizens never to enter the river without proper protection such as a life jacket and to not push the limits while adventuring in the rivers.
