3 DIE IN CABO

Jump to last reply

3 AMERICANS DIED IN CABO.
THEY WENT OUT ON A GLASS BOTTOM BOAT RIDE TO SEE THE ARCH AND THE BOAT DUMPED THEM AND THEY DROWNED - DEAD !!!
I WAS ON ONE OF THOSE BOATS IN APRIL AND THE GUY (MEX) WHO WAS DRIVING THE BOAT WAS ABOUT 15 YRS OLD. HE GOT RIGHT UP NEXT TO THE ROCKS AT LANDS END AND THE WAVES WERE 10 -14 AND ALMOST KILLED US THEN.
TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE AFTER WE DROVE AROUND THE CAPE ON THE PACIFIC SIDE WHICH HAD HUGE BREAKERS HE TURNED OFF THE ENGINE AS A JOKE AND IT WOULD NOT START AS HE FLOODED IT, AND AT THAT POINT WE WERE ALMOST IN THE BREAKER AREA.
I WANTED TO BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF THIS MEX AND TAKE CONTROL OF THE BOAT.
I WILL BET MONEY THAT THIS WAS THE SAME GUY AND ONLY WISH THAT HE WAS THE ONE TO GO RATHER THAN AMERICANS WHO TRUSTED HIM.
BOTTOM LINE DO NOT RIDE ON ANY BOAT RIDE IN CABO.
THEY HAVE NOT COAST GAURD AND 100'S OF PEOPLE DROWN PER YEAR IN CABO.
