Nineteen tourists were rescued in the southern shore of Aqaba, according to the official spokesperson for the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority, Fayez Al-Fayez.

Naval force boats and royal boats moved to the site of the accident, and it was found that a boat that belonged to a tourist company was making a regular diving trip at 10:30 PM.
