American citizen drowned in Chiriqui

A 59-year-old American citizen who drowned at La Barqueta beach in the Alanje district of Chiriqui on Saturday,  September 12. was a guest at a hotel which reportedly does not have lifeguard services. He was bathing with his brother and a young girl but was dragged under by the strong waves.

The body of Nzhde Emil Khudaverdyan who was born in Iran, but was a naturalized  American was recovered by members of the Joint Task Force.

Sources of the Civil Protection  System (Sinaproc), are said to be worried since a month ago another foreigner who was in the hotel died who apparently does not have lifeguard services, reports El Siglo.
