Foss Tugboat Captain Fatally Beaten in Mexico
A Foss Maritime tugboat captain from Washington state has died after suffering critical injuries during a beating in Mexico on Christmas day.
The Kitsap Sun, a local Washington paper, reported that 46-year-old Patrick Warga died on Tuesday in a San Diego hospital from complications in the tragic beating taking place in Mexico.
Warga was in Tampico, Mexico on business for Foss Maritime and attended a Christmas Eve church service and stayed at a hotel following the service, since it was unsafe to return to the shipyard after dark. The following morning on Christmas day, Warga stepped out of the hotel for a cup of tea when he was robbed and attacked, causing the injuries that led to his death.
Patrick Warga is survived by his wife and three children.
