After spotting her on the inflatable unicorn, he approached it with great delicacy.

“The little one wasn’t cold, but she was frozen with fear. The current was very strong. I placed the vessel so that I did not overturn the small buoy. We approached slowly and we were able to save the child, ”he continued.

According to the captain, the little girl was very scared. She didn’t speak at all, but was crying.

The ship’s crew made faces and jokes to calm her down before she was returned to her parents.

She was half a kilometer from the coast when she was rescued.
