Suddenly, without notice, the wheelchair – at the point where there is a slope to leave the water – began to go out to sea.
We thought that one of the lady's comrades would stop the wheelchair, but it didn't. It was never done, so the woman was in the sea. At that moment, I started running and throwing what I had in my pocket. I drowned in the sea and managed to catch the woman, who was very upset, afraid of her life. I then kept it on the water and walked slowly to the wall where we, with the help of my colleagues and members of the woman's wife, took her to the country. If for a minute I didn't know what could have happened, it's important that the woman got scared. "
