Minyar Collado, from the Red Cross, explained that all the occupants of the boat were rescued matter of minutes by two other boats.

“Fortunately, none of them suffered significant injuries, so they did not have to be taken to a medical center,” explained Collado.

A group of 15 Cruzrojistas (paramedics) attended the tourists, five of which suffered from nervous breakdowns.
