American swimmer Anita Alvarez lost consciousness in the water during the world swimming championships on Wednesday in Budapest. Her coach jumped to rescue her. Big scare during the World Swimming Championships. The coach of the USA artistic and synchronized swimming team dove into the pool on Wednesday to save one of her sinking swimmers after she passed out during the world championships in Budapest. Anita Alvarez was not breathing after her performance in the free solo synchronized swimming final, and sank to the bottom of the pool. Andrea Fuentes then jumped into the water to rescue her. “We were very scared. I had to jump because the rescuers weren’t doing it,” Fuentes told Spanish newspaper Marca. Fuentes, wearing shorts and a T-shirt, descended to the bottom of the pool and lifted Alvarez to the surface before receiving assistance to carry the distressed swimmer to the edge of the pool. “I was scared because I saw that she was not breathing, but now she is fine,” reassured Fuentes. A stretcher carried Alvarez to the poolside medical center, leaving teammates and spectators in shock. The US swimming team issued a statement reassuring about the health of Alvarez. Quadruple Olympic medalist, Fuentes explained to a Spanish radio that his swimmer had become unwell because of the effort provided during his performance. “She only had water in her lungs, once she started breathing again everything was fine,” she added. “I felt like it was a whole hour. I said things weren’t right, I yelled at the lifeguards to get in the water, but they didn’t hear what I said or they did not understand”.Alvarez had passed out several times last year”She was not breathing (…) I went as fast as I could, as if it was for an Olympic final”, she also told. According to his coach, Alvarez planned to rest Thursday and still hoped to compete in the team event on Friday after medicals. At 25, Alvarez is taking part in his third World Championships. She had already lost consciousness several times during the qualifying rounds at the Olympic Games last year in Barcelona.
