The four-year-old girl who was playing with her brother in one second turned around and suddenly started to scream brutally when she saw his tiny body swimming in the sea.
Usually, the mother was directly behind the kids, sitting on a towel, reading a book and looking up every ten seconds to check if her children are doing fine.
But she wasn´t. The girl´s scream got louder.
There were people around the siblings. Inside the restaurant, there were several visitors, one elderly couple and two teenagers laying at the end of the beach. For the older man, it was obvious that he was going to help. He wrapped up his shirt and within a few seconds, he would be able to run after the little boy. But the girl didn´t notice.
She had two options made up in her head. Looking for her mother or trying to go after her brother who she saw drifting further and further every second into the sea.
She shouted the mother´s name because she knew she couldn´t swim that well to rescue her brother.
But then her mother finally ran out of the restaurant which was located only a few steps in front of the small girl.
Her mother was looking terrified as she had never heard her daughter screaming with that much pain in her voice. Then she saw her son with his head facing the water; he couldn’t cry, did not even move.
“Mama”, shouted the girl as she wanted her to do something. She wanted her brother. A few seconds later as her mother was running over the stone beach, wearing her clothes and didn´t even try to wrap up her shoes she screamed after her brother.
Water was running against the mother´s waist, her trousers sucking up the water.
Finally, she reached him. Holding him up.
His eyes were red, caused by the sault, his tiny breast standing still.
