Telde.- Alejandro Naranjo and Carmelo Medina are two little surfers, 11 and years old, respectively, well known in Salinetas. They spend hours in the water enjoying the waves. Yesterday with their boards they helped two elderly people in trouble at sea due to the strong waves and currents.
This Saturday, around 1:30 p.m., when they were surfing near the Morro area, at the north end of the Teldense cove, a woman felt in danger because the current was dragging her and not allowing her to get out of the water. So she started asking for help. The young people who were on the cliffs alerted Alex and Carmelo about the march, who quickly mobilized to approach the woman so that she could hold onto the boards and thus calm down.
Minutes later, the two little ones carried out another feat by helping a man who was going through times of trouble before the onslaught of the waves. “Guys, please, let me support myself because I’m tired,” he snapped and the kids helped him out of the water. Several young people who were on the cliffs also threw themselves into the sea to help.
Yesterday, in Salinetas, like other areas of the Telde coast, “the tide was very tight”, a colloquial expression that is used to warn that the current can be treacherous and put people who do not take precautions when they take a dip.
Except for Melenara, the rest of the beaches of the municipality do not have a rescue and lifeguard service during the low season, a period that runs from September 16 to June 14 (except Easter), a circumstance that has been denounced by the Popular Party, as yesterday TELDEACTUALIDAD advanced.
Good for the boys and pride for the family and on the other hand that the bathers heed the red flags that prohibit bathing and avoid possible risks of drowning.
I’m glad to know that the youth have that big heart like these two kids who didn’t follow their “roll” I still decided to help these people who were in distress, my congratulations for the great humanity and Valentina that you guys have !!!! Never change
I hope that the city council gives recognition to these heroes, because they have been given to other people without deserving it above these kids for their bravery and humanity.
