Official Details on Rudy Morales Drowning

Rudy Morales

Two persons drowned in separate incidents earlier this week in Belize City and Corozal. On Monday evening, a boat incident in the vicinity of the Cerros Maya Monument ended fatally for a well-known bus company owner. Forty-one-year-old Rudy Morales perished when the skiff he was travelling in, along with several other persons, began taking in water due to choppy seas.  The four other passengers survived, but Morales was nowhere to be found; that is until twenty-four hours later when a search team of relatives and coastguard personnel discovered his body floating near the mouth of the lagoon.  ACP Joseph Myvett gave official details.

“Mister Rudy Morales along with four other companions had left Corozal on a fishing trip. And sometime around five p.m., whilst coming back, they experienced some problems where the vessel began taking in water. As a result, the other four persons managed to make it to safety, while Mister Morales submerged beneath the water and did not resurface. Extensive searches by family members, police and the coastguard resulted in the retrieval of his body on Tuesday.”

 

The findings of a post-mortem revealed the cause of death is consistent with drowning.
