Danilo Torrano Rios Family On Vacation:
According to Jam Press, the victim, Danilo Torrano Rios, was on vacation and some friends at Guarajuba Beach in Bahia state at the time of the event. The financial counsellor had visited the popular vacation destination several times before and was familiar with the region and conditions. So, on December 3, he felt safe venturing into the ocean with his friends at 5:30 p.m., after the lifeguards had gone home. However, unexpected terrible weather arrived. And it caused huge waves and a solid current to pull everyone into the sea. The swimmers quickly recognised that the water was too dangerous, so they returned to shore.
Strong waves trapped Danilo Torrano Rios and his son:
Rios had no issue reaching his son, according to many witnesses. When he grabbed him, the rushing water captured them both and dragged them further away from the coast. After the father shoved his youngster toward them, other witnesses were able to grab his boy. Rios tried to fight the waters, but he was washed away. Observers threw him a signal, but it missed him, and he sank into the ocean. The child and the rest of the group could escape the water safely. When Rios’ family and friends noticed he was missing, they contacted local authorities. Emergency services initiated a rescue operation.
Danilo Torrano Rios Being a Heroic Father:
The father’s body was discovered by EMS at Guarajuba, Camaçari, on Bahia’s North Coast, early on December 5, and his death was confirmed. While Rios is hailed as a hero, the National Civil Defence uses the tragedy to urge others who are not licenced lifeguards to seek help if they believe they are drowning. According to the federal authorities, they should never attempt to do so if someone is drowning and is unprepared to save them.
