COFADEH Report of May 11th Massacre: 

HILDA ROSA LEZAMA KENRETH (53), recibió heridas en ambas piernas con arma de fuego de alta potencia, que dejó un surco de 4 pulgadas de ancho por 12 de largo en sus muslos. Hilda Rosa permaneció en las aguas del río por más de dos horas, dado que en su afán de conservar su vida se refugió bajo unas ramas de arbustos, en donde permaneció hasta las 5:00 de la mañana. Los agentes de la DEA y del Estado de Honduras, impidieron a sus familiares la búsqueda y rescate de su pariente en el tiempo oportuno. Obligaron a su hijo Hilder Olopio a que les acompañara a cargar la droga que habían detectado en las proximidades.

Por la gravedad de sus heridas, empeoradas por el tiempo que permaneció en el agua contaminada, fue remitida a La Ceiba, siendo ingresada en el Hospital Vicente Dantoni, el 11 de mayo, el cual tuvo que abandonar el 17 por no tener capacidad de pago de los servicios medico hospitalarios requeridos. Actualmente se encuentra interna en el Hospital Evangélico Morava.

HILDA ROSA LEZAMA KENRETH (53) was wounded in both legs from a high powered firearm which left a wound four inches wide and twelve inches long in her flesh. Hilda Rosa remained in the waters of the river for more than two hours because she hid under some branches of bushes in order to save her life. She stayed there until 5:00 AM. The DEA and Honduran government agents blocked her relatives from looking for her, and they forced her son, Hilder Olopio to accompany them to load the drugs that they had detected nearby.

Because of the seriousness of her wounds, made worse by the time she was in contaminated water, she was sent to La Ceiba and admitted to the Vicent Dantoni Hospital on May 11th but had to leave there on the 17th because she could not pay for the hospital care there. Currently she is a patient in the Moravian Evangelica Hospital.

MELAÑO OLOPIO (60), conductor del pipante, fue alcanzado por un rozón de bala que rebotó en el motor de la nave, hiriendo su brazo derecho. Junto a él viajaba su yerno Emerson Martínez, que resultara muerto.

MELAÑO OLOPIO (60), pilot of the boat was grazed by a bullet which landed in the motor of the boat, wounding his right arm. Next to him in the boat was his son-in-law emerson Martinez who was killed.

HILDER OLOPIO, junto a su hermana Elmina Olopio, luego de ser alertados por sobrevivientes del ataque, se dirigieron en motocicleta al landín de Paptalaya en búsqueda de sus padres Hilda Lezama y Melaño Olopio, propietarios de la embarcación atacada. Al llegar al lugar, vieron helicópteros, por lo que decidieron refugiarse en una vivienda. Pudieron observar cuando bajaban agentes norteamericanos, a quienes les preguntaron desde la vivienda si podían hablar con ellos, les dijeron que buscaban a sus padres, les ordenaron sentarse en unas gradas, en donde permanecieron por más de una hora. Había alrededor de 20 agentes, unos de ellos les apuntaban, un agente norteamericano le interrogó sobre su presencia en la zona, otro le golpeó en el pecho, ante su insistencia de explicar que buscaba a su madre que se había ido en el rio.
Enseguida le ordenaron caminar hacia el landín, mientras nuevamente era golpeado en la espalda, 4 a 5 agentes norteamericanos estaban con él, portaban cascos y una máscara provista con lentes infrarrojos, le preguntaron por combustible al tiempo que le propinan un fuerte golpeen la nuca que lo hace caer al suelo. Finalmente lo obligan a conducir un pipante con motor, en la que le acompañan 3 agentes norteamericanos, uno de ellos le apuntaba, todo el tiempo, con su arma larga militar, ya en el río se acercaron a una lancha en la que se encontraban unos paquetes, y dos agentes norteamericanos. Regresaron al landín con los paquetes y los cinco agentes norteamericanos a bordo.

HILDER OLOPIO and his sister Elmina Olopio were alerted by survivors of the attack and rode a motorcycle down to the Paptalaya Landing to search for their parents Hilda Lezama and Melaño Olopio, owners of the boat that was attacked. When they arrived they saw helicopters and decided to hide in a house. They were able to see North Americans getting off the helicopter and asked them while still in the house if they could speak with them and told them they were looking for their parents. They were ordered to sit on some stairs where they stayed for more than an hour. There were about 20 agents, some of whom pointed guns at them. One agent asked him [Hilder] what they were doing there; another hit him in the chest while he insisted that he was looking for his mother who was in the river.

Following that they ordered him to walk to the Landing while they hit him again in the back. Four or five agents were with him wearing helmets and an mask with infrared goggles. They asked him where they could find gasoline while at the same time hitting him hard in the back of the neck making him fall on the ground. Finally they made him pilot a motor boat with three North Americans on board. One was pointing a large military gun at him the entire time. In the river they came to a boat [lancha] where they found some packages and two other North Americans. They returned to the Landing with the packages and the five North American agents on board.
