Vacation period moving into high gear today

As the Semana Santa holiday swings into high gear, the Cruz Roja reports 17 violent deaths already, with vehicle accidents and aggression with firearms or knives competing for the top category.

The counting of the week’s injuries and deaths began last Sunday, although not everyone was on vacation then.

Ocean and river mishaps usually claim many lives over holidays, but so far the Cruz Roja reports just one death, and that was in the Río Andes in La Cruz de Guanacaste.

The rescue agency will be putting more workers into the field today and staffing all of the 160 aid stations that are set up around the country.
