Drowning Family Saved By 80 Person Human Chain Of Beachgoers

Drowning Family Saved By 80 Person Human Chain Of Beachgoers

Tabatha Monroe told The Washington Post, they tried to swim sideways and straight to shore, but nothing worked.

"People were saying, 'Don't go out there, '" she added. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true. "I knew I could get out there and get to them".

"I can hold my breath underwater and go around a Olympic pool easily!" She thought they were pointing at a shark, but when she realised people were in danger of drowning. They were stuck in the strong tides and couldn't return to shore.

"I knew we had to do something".

Ms Beckton, 38, a regular visitor to the beach, noted the absence of lifeguards at that time.

"These people are not dying today", she said to herself."It's not happening".

With all the sharing we finally got a picture.

Armed with a boogie board, Simmons paddled out into the water.

Simmons' husband and a group of other men started a human chain, which eventually consisted of 80 people - some in shallow water. But other beachgoers like Jessica Simmons and her husband wouldn't just stand by or leave to call for help. I practically lived in a pool. But what really got me was how a entire BEACH jumped into action to save these people.

Rosalind Beckton of Tallahassee shared incredible pictures of the scene on Facebook in which people can be seen with arms linked in a human chain as they attempt to pull the stranded group back to shore at Panama City Beach on Sunday (9 July).

After about an hour of swimming, everyone was back on the shore safe. Jessica said that all nine people who were drowning were thankfully saved by the efforts of nearly 80 strangers.

A young mother of four was enjoying a day at the beach when she saw two of her boys way out in the water and screaming for help.

During the rescue mission, Ursrey lost consciousness.

However, when she reached Roberta, she found her so exhausted that she had blacked out. However, back in the water her mother was suffering a massive heart attack.

The other swimmer who was transported to the hospital remains in critical condition but is improving.

"I am so grateful", Ursrey said of the help they received.

"I honestly thought I was going to lose my family that day", Ursrey told the paper. She told the North-West Florida Daily News the family's rescuers were "God's angels that were in the right place at the right time". Eight people may owe their lives to dozens of complete strangers who lent them a hand, quite literally, this weekend. "My theory was, let's get enough people, we'll get out there and pull them in and everybody can finish having a good rest of the evening".
