A French tourist of 58 years was, this afternoon, saved by rescue swimmers from the FrenteMar Funchal, after being taken by the current in Doca do Cavacas.

According to an eyewitness, a tourist vessel passed by the man carried by the current, not complying with the 300 meters away from the coast recommended by law and endangering the safety of bathers.

JM knows that the tourist was tired and could not return to the land, and it was necessary a quick action on the part of the rescuing swimmers to rescue the man. The man did not have to be transported to the emergency department of Dr. Nélio Mendonça Hospital.
