Texas man dies after being electrocuted in jacuzzi at Mexican resort

A man died after being electrocuted while in a jacuzzi at a Mexican resort, local officials announced Wednesday.

The 43-year-old man was in the jacuzzi alongside another person when both were shocked, the Attorney General’s Office for the State of Sonora said in a statement on Facebook.

The man was from El Paso, Texas, and the other person was taken to the U.S., where she is in critical condition after suffering life-threatening injuries, NBC News affiliate KTSM of El Paso reported.

The incident was reported around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday in the pool area of a private condo complex in the Puerto Peñasco resort, the AG’s office said.

Citing the attorney general’s office, the station reported that faulty wiring could be to blame for the electrocution.

Video from the scene shows onlookers screaming as they crowd around the jacuzzi while someone performs chest compressions on a person lying on the ground.

The Sonora AG’s office said expert services personnel are working to determine the origin of the “electrical failure.” The office will provide further details at a later time, it said.
