“If persons are detected at the moment, they are warned not to enter the sea, sometimes they say to you:” Yes, will just be in the beach “, but when we least think, the person goes into the sea. And if the person fails to follow instructions, we arrest. It is better that this person go to a holding cell than to lose their life at sea.

The commander hopes that another incident like that of the young man from Coahuila who lost his way in the sea on Friday, for having ignored the attention calls of the lifeguard policemen, after having ingested alcoholic beverages, who was found until the next day 100 meters away.
