“My brother has a TikTok account who loved to upload videos,” Carlos Garay would have said. “Unfortunately, that was what he was trying to do when he was closer to the edge than he should have been.” The distraught brother told the news station that Garay was found in an underwater cave with massive head injuries from the fall.
“We express our deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of Edgar Garay and pray that they find closure and strength during this very difficult time,” Coast Guard Capt. José E. Díaz said in a statement. We appreciate the efforts of all the emergency services of the Coast Guard, the Puerto Rico Police, and associated agencies, especially the diving unit of the Puerto Rico Emergency Management Bureau that was able to locate the body of Mr. Garay in such an inaccessible and challenging environment,” Coast said.
