Synopsis >

Stranded residents were trapped in their homes while tourists waded in waist deep water in the Mexican beach resort town of Acapulco which had become a floodplain on Tuesday (September 17) after some of the worst storm damage in decades killed more than 50 people across the country. Some used jet skies on the area's flooded streets while others tried to swim after a three-day downpour prevented some 40,000 visitors from leaving, blocking one of the main access routes to the city with mud.
