Artistic Swimmer Anita Alvarez Coach Andrea Fuentes Saved The Swimmer From Drowning.
Artistic Swimmer Anita Alvarez coach Andrea had to haul the 25-year-old out of the water in Budapest yesterday.
It wasn't the first time Anita had passed out during a race. At a June 2021 qualification match for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics in Barcelona, her coach Andrea Fuentes had to save Alvarez similarly.
According to Fuentes, Alvarez stopped breathing for "at least two minutes" during the incident after her most recent breakdown in Hungary.
Alvarez finished her routine and fell unconscious to the bottom of the pool. She received immediate medical assistance after the incident.
The 25-year-coach old's Fuentes dived into the water and was able to pull her to the surface before bringing her to the pool's edge.
