Andrea Fuentes then jumped into the water to rescue her. “We were very scared. I had to jump because the lifeguards didn’t,” Fuentes told Spanish newspaper Marca. Fuentes, dressed in shorts and a T-shirt, descended to the bottom of the pool and pulled Alvarez up to surface before receiving assistance to carry the distressed swimmer to the edge of the pool. “I was scared because I saw she wasn’t breathing, but now she’s fine,” Fuentes reassured.
