She didn’t let her stick go throughout the entire time she was having difficulties.

Then, out of no where, a mystery man grabs the stick and pulls her to safety.

Derrick collapses on the beach as a crowd swarms. They were both taken to hospital and are recovering well.

Derrick said: ‘I did a few tours overseas with the Marines, and I never felt that kind of fatigue or fear.’
