The massive wave struck while a party of 15 was spreading the ashes of a 16 year old boy in the sea, according to Manuel Sosa, one of the rescuers. The boy’s father, age 36, and a paternal uncle, age 23, were swept away and are presumed dead. The mother, age 34, was caught in the wave, but rescued.
