César Guadalupe Chávez Medrano became the hero of Puerto Vallarta, in the state of Jalisco, when he saved a girl from drowning. Unfortunately, the man passed away after not being able to get out himself.

It was on Monday, May 10, when the 48-year-old man was walking on the beach of Los Muertos. There, she realized that the waves washed away a girl and she was having a hard time getting out of the sea.

César Guadalupe then left his belongings on the sand and swam out to sea. He managed to reach the girl, identified only as Africa “N”, and rescue her, but when he tried to get out, a wave returned him to the sea and submerged him.

Lifeguards, elements of the National Guard and paramedics from the Fire Department came to his rescue, but when they reached him, he had already swallowed a lot of water. The paramedics applied resuscitation maneuvers, but nothing could be done for him as he had no vital signs.
