The Navy is still investigating the sinking of the Coast Guard mobile station Cuyabeno River. So far there are two hypotheses raised about what happened: the first is that the event had been caused by an attack, and the second is that it occurred by mechanical failure or maybe human, such as handling explosives and fuels.
However, Carlos Vallejo, head r of the national direction of aquatic spaces (Dirnea), explained that even he cannot ensure or discard any theory until investigations have been made.
The arrival of a Commission of inquiry to determine the causes of the tragedy was expected in the area until noon yesterday. Meanwhile, six boats, 20 divers and a helicopter are working to try to find the bodies of Francisco Huacón, Miguel Andrade and Gabriel Sancán, three civilians that disappeared.
This mobile station of three floors served since 2009 the Navy to carry out controls on the northern border, as patrols and control of drug trafficking, weapons, piracy and smuggling of fuel. According to the armed forces, last year it captured 389 kilograms of drugs and 196.16 gallons of fuel that were illegally mobilized along the border.
