In the 1980s and 1990s, Colombian drug cartel hit men pioneered the technique of using motorcycles when carrying out a murder to guarantee a quick escape.
Now cartel hit men in Mexico have taken the idea to another element.
In the coastal resort city of Acapulco, sicarios have begun pulling up to beaches on Jet Skis to carry out mid-day murders.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, there have been four such Jet Ski assassinations in Acapulco this year, with the latest occurring in late January, when an assassin swam to the beach of Acapulco Bay from a nearby Jet Ski, 9-mm. pistol in hand, and shot a 46-year old beach vendor three times in the chest.
The murder happened in broad daylight while sunbathing tourists looked on.
The killer than swam back out to his jet ski, which was being driven by an accomplice, and the pair fled down the coast.
