Mazatlán lifeguard squad commander, Sergio Cervantes Rodríguez, said that during this past weekend at least 16 people were affected by jelly fish burns, stingray jabs or were caught in riptides along popular beaches.

Four suffered jelly fish burns, three on beaches in front of the Las Flores hotel in the Golden Zone and one in Playa Brujas, and two tourists were stung by stingrays in front of the Costa de Oro hotel.

Ten swimmers were rescued by lifeguards after being caught in underwater currents, four of which were women swimming at the beach in front of the El Cid Hotel. None of those rescued required medical assistance or hospitalization.

Cervantes Rodríguez called on bathers to respect the flags posted along beaches to avoid any problems.
