The boy and the man, who were not identified in the report, were seen playing along the shoreline when a big wave swept them away.

Alvarez immediately swam to save them and Roque helped other rescuers in pushing the boat that they will use for the rescue. But while in the water, both suffered muscle cramps and were also swept away by the strong current.
