Members of the Servicio Nacional de Guardacostas in Flamingo pulled another individual ashore last week.
The latest case involved a Costa Rican in a kayak who overturned near a small island called Pitahaya in the Pacific off Playa Zapotal in Santa Cruz. The man, identified as José Aguilar Otoya, appears to have been yet another victim of strong winds.
A coast guard launch towed the man and his kayak ashore. The man appears to be unhurt but he sought a medial checkup, the coast guard said.
The coastguard from the same station retrieved a U.S. citizen who fell while hiking on another island, the Islas Catalinas. The injured man had a cell telephone to seek help.
