Playa del Carmen, Q.R. — Two men were rushed to hospital Sunday after nearly drowning off Playa Xcalacoco. The men, who had allegedly consumed alcoholic beverages, reportedly slipped while climbing on the installed beach barriers.
Upon falling, both hit their heads on the structure. They were in the sea for several minutes before being pulled to the beach where lifeguards performed CPR. Other beachgoers who witnessed the fall alerted on-duty lifeguards.
Paramedics arrived to continue with CPR before transferring both to hospital in serious condition.
