PANAMA’S  National Naval Air Service (SENAN)   became the focus of Taboga  beach lounging shutter bugs on Sunda, July 31,  during the rescue of   four people, including expats,   from a blazing yacht off Taboga, The  Island of Flowers, on the Pacific side of the Isthmus.

The 34 footer “Bandido” had sailed from Flamenco Island on the Amador Causeway.

On board were the Panamanian captain, Aníbal Bello, the vessel’s Spanish  owner, Pedro Bea, Italian,Manfredo Ruffenivo, and Panamanian Mailyn Vasquez.

They told their Senan rescuers that they didn’t know the cause of the fire that suddenly  engulfed them in smoke.

They were taken to hospital in the capital city for medical care.

Abdiel Garcia, of  Senan, said the fire was possibly caused by electrical damage.

The yacht was completely destroyed.
