Thanks to the fact that he had a radio, he was able to call for help that came minutes later from another boat with tourists.

The Red Cross indicated that five of those affected were assessed, but only one required a transfer to Thomas Casas Hospital.

This weekend began the Tenth Festival of Whales and Dolphins in the Marino Ballena National Park, which will run until next weekend.
