Kayakers rescued by Argentine Navy


The Argentine Navy rescued two kayakers who had become lost at sea after bad weather caused their craft to capsize. Troops from the Comodoro Rivadavia Air Station were informed of the missing kayakers by a worried relative, and an airplane was immediately dispatched to begin the search and rescue mission for the pair. They were located on Hidden Island, and a helicopter was scrambled with rescue personnel onboard, who quickly retrieved the kayakers from the rocky outcrop.

The pair were then transported back to the air station, before being taken to Santa Teresita Hospital for examination.

“When these situations happen, we know that we have prepared personnel and the necessary resources to face them. Argentines can rely on the Prefecture in case of any emergency in the waters,” said Security Minister Patricia Bullrich.
