Hurricane Cosme, raging in the Pacific Ocean about 660 miles off the coast of Mexico, has claimed two lives, reported the authorities of Guerrero state.

A tourist from Mexico City drowned in the ocean when out in a sailing boat in the raging elements. A gust of wind and a strong wave capsized the boat; the man hit his head, lost consciousness and drowned.

Another tragedy struck quite far from the coast: a police patrol collided with a truck on the Mexico City-Acapulco road in pouring rain caused by proximity of “Cosme”, causing the death of one police officer. Four others were injured.

In two similar accidents 19 people were injured.
