He added that from a certain hour it is sought that there is no longer a swimmer on the beach, in order to have more control of what happens on them.

In the presence of Hurricane Enrique near the coasts off Michoacán and Colima, he assured that preventive measures will be taken to begin to dislodge bathers if strong waves occur.
