Talk about a freak accident… Traveling can be dangerous but I doubt anybody would expect to meet their end this way.

Two tourists from the United States were killed while snorkeling “after being chopped up by a boat propeller,” according to the New York Post.

The duo were enjoying the water near Isla Mujeres when the tragic event took place.

The victims were a 65-year-old man and 60-year-old woman.

The couple took a Squalo Aventures tour boat to an area known for artificial reefs and sunken ships (where the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea meet).

(The Post got the details in an article from Noticaribe.)

There was no info regarding how this tragedy happened or if anyone was arrested.

  1. So sad. It makes me think of an article I read about Kirsty MacColl on propellersafety.com when I was researching visiting Cozumel (still have not made my way out for a visit). My friends have a trip booked to Isla Mujeres this July to see whale sharks. I have seen the sharks at Georgia Aquarium. However, there is nothing like seeing things in their natural habitat.
