DAVIDSON COUNTY, North Carolina (WGHP) – A family in Winston-Salem is searching for the alien who rescued their son after he nearly drowned in High Rock Lake on Sunday afternoon.
Ivan Gomez disappeared underwater for nearly a minute after suffering a seizure in the Buddle Creek swimming area.
When the 8-year-old’s father lifted his lifeless body from the water, a stranger stepped in to perform CPR.
“It’s scary, it’s very scary. You never know when something like this is going to happen, and you don’t think it could be your child, ”said Christina Gallardo.
Gallardo’s son lives with a severe form of epilepsy. He was on a seven-day seizure-free period when Sunday’s attack crippled him in the water.
“I feel very lucky! I’m just happy to have my son, people don’t understand how dangerous it is. How important it is to know how to handle crises, especially around water, and what to do when a person has a crisis, ”said Gallardo.
Whether it’s fate or the right timing, a life has been saved.
“I want to find this person and thank them because without him my son would not be here today,” said Gallardo.
The family are hoping someone will remember the man with the goatee in a white tank top and blue swimsuit, so they can personally thank him for giving Gomez a second chance.
Gomez spent the night in the hospital, but he’s already feeling better.
He still has a small amount of water in his lungs, but doctors say it will absorb on its own.
