A 21-year-old Yeshiva Bochur R”L drowned on a beach in Mexico.
It happened on a beach on the island of Cozumel, a mostly undeveloped Mexican island in the Caribbean Sea. The island is famed for its scuba diving.
The victim has been identified as Yosef Levi Z”L, a resident of Be’er Sheva.
The local Chabad Shaliach, Rav Dudi Kaplan is working with ZAKA and is in touch with local authorities in Mexico and Israel, attempting to have the body flown to Eretz Yisroel for timely Kevura.
Additional information will be published when it becomes available.
This is the fifth tragic drowning that YWN has reported on in just the past few weeks.
