The coach miraculously escapes the drowning swimmer during the world

Andrea Fuentes, the coach of the US synchronized swimming team, miraculously rescued one of the swimmers during the World Swimming Championships in Budapest.

Anita Alvarez could not breathe after her performance and sank at the bottom of the pool.

Fuentes immediately came to her aid through a heroic gesture, jumping into the water and rescuing the swimmer.

"We were very scared. "I had to jump because the rescuers were not doing this," the young woman told the Spanish newspaper Marca.

"I could see she was not breathing, but now she is fine," she added.

This was the second time Fuentes rescued Alvarez swimmer in the same way.

She also jumped into the pool during an Olympic qualifying race last year and pulled it along with her partner, Lindi Schroeder.
