Two Young Lads Save Tourists

Two lifeguard cadets, aged 12 and 14, rescued three foreign tourists in distress off the Playa de la Carihuela in Torremolinos.

AND Torremolinos Playa de la CarihuelaThe two lads were training with their companions on the said beach, launched themselves into the sea to rescue these foreign tourists who had ventured out into the rough sea on an inflatable ring (possibly a large, tyre inner-tube).

The tourists soon found themselves being swept along in strong current and unable to reach the beach, according to the Real Federación Española de Salvamento y Socorrismo.

Luka Pavlovskyy, aged 12 and Aleksandar Todorov Lekov,aged 14 had seen the three people struggling in the sea and didn’t think twice, it seems, about going out after them to bring in two of the three young men, aged all around 25-years old. Their cadet lifeguards’ trainer had brought the third one safely back to the beach.

Once on the beach the lads, one of whom hadn’t even reached his teens, gave the two victims CPR and other First Aid assistance, as the victims were both unconscious.

The Chairwoman of the Real Federación Española de Salvamento y Socorrismo, Isabel García Sanz, has praised the bravery of the two lads and their trainers for “having saved three lives.”

Last Sunday Aleksandar y Luka, together with his companions at the Club Deportivo Talasa Torremolinos, participated in the XXIV Liga Española de Clubes, organised by the Real Federación Española de Salvamento y Socorrismo, which had been held in Córdoba.

Editorial comment: apart from the well-deserved praise for the two lads, it’s hard to justify the trainer letting a 12-year-old risk his life in this manner. Secondly the three idiot tourists should hang their heads in shame.
