Eight divers were found safe and sound at 4pm, rescued by a boat owned by Marceo Cupul of Isla Mujeres, which he uses to offer whale shark tours. The divers had been missing since morning, in the area Arrowsmith, which is about 40 kilometers southeast of Isla Mujeres. The Navy dispatched two helicopters and a plane, and the search included various boats who'd been combing the area since 11am.
Scholarships were delivered to 275 students at the primary, secondary, middle and upper level by the City General Secretary, Miriam Trejo León, on behalf of the Mayor. They are granted in the categories of Academic Excellence, Maritime Transport, Special Education, and Sports. They are for the May-June period. Scholarships will be distributed in the Continental Zone next.
The civil ceremony that takes place on the first Monday of each month was held for September, which is the month of patriotism (mes de la patria). After the national anthem and the state anthem, the Director of Culture, Hilda Christina Gómez Ávila, read the ephemeris for the month, which include the opening of the bank of Mexico by President Plutarch Elias Calles in 1925 and the first playing of the national anthem in 1854, among other historical events.
The City provided six new sets of equipment for the firefighters of Civil Protection which included special gloves, helmets and 'monjas'.
