Cancun, Q.R. — The passing of Tropical Storm Gamma saw the sinking of numerous fishing vessels along the coast, and now, one luxury boat. A boat docked at Playa Tortugas in the Cancun Hotel Zone slowly sank Saturday.
The Secretary of Public Security, Alberto Capella Ibarra, reported with photos on social media saying “Yacht sunk, fortunately no injuries”, which was added to the material damage suffered with the passing of Gamma over the weekend.
The yacht sank on Saturday afternoon due to the strong swell caused by gusts of wind from the storm. Once weather improves, an attempt to rescue the boat will be made.
