Puerto Vallarta Lifeguards Rescue Family Stranded at Sea

The Puerto Vallarta Lifeguards rushed to action this week when they were notified of a sinking boat with a family of nine people on board.

The troubled vessel had run out of fuel a couple hundred yards off Los Muertos Beach as it was rocked by high waves from the presence of tropical storm "Christina" in the Mexican Pacific. As the rain intensified, the strong tide turned and swamped the boat and passengers causing it to almost tip over more than once.

The distress call was answered by B-58 Lifeguards who arrived at Los Muertos with the rescue boat and brought back the family of nine to shore, including four children aged 10 months, one, three and five years old.

After the rescue, one of the crew from the boat attempted to return to the sea to save the boat, but the Lifeguards intervened and stopped him due to the dangerous weather conditions and alcohol consumption.

The citizens of Puerto Vallarta thank our heroic rescuers for endangering their own lives in keeping us safe.
