Minnesota man dies attempting to save son in Puerto Rico

A 61-year-old Minnesota man drowned in Puerto Rico attempting to save his 19-year-old son in rough seas.

The Associated Press:

Vidal Morales Guzman was vacationing with his family on the U.S. territory’s north coast when he tried to help his 19-year-old son, Public Radio International said.

Authorities said Morales drowned Monday afternoon in rough seas off a popular beach called Poza Las Mujeres. Police, who described the struggling youth as Morales’ stepson, said Morales was swept away, but the youth managed to grab onto a rock and was saved after yelling for help.

Police said several people on the beach helped pull Morales out of the water, but he died before arriving at a nearby hospital.
