Tourist Drowns in Puerto Escondido Beach, Oaxaca 


The victim was dragged out to sea due to strong waves caused by meteorological phenomena such as Hurricane Hilary 

A 40-year-old tourist, originally from Puebla, drowned on the beach of Punta Zicatela, in Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca, as a result of the tidal waves generated by meteorological phenomena such as Hurricane Hilary —category 1 on the Saffir-Simpson scale— which moves to the west-northwest in the waters of the Mexican Pacific. 

The victim, who was on the last day of his vacation, entered the sea but was swept away by the current; Lifeguard personnel arrived a few minutes after the incident, but the man was already without vital signs. 

Oaxaca is one of the states affected by rains derived from various phenomena in the country: Hilary, tropical wave 23, higher atmospheric instability, low pressure channels and the presence of the Mexican monsoon.
