“Thank God I was alive,” said 46-year-old Angelica Guitton, who was found floating by 1.2 miles from Puerto Colombia by Roland Visible on Saturday.
In the stunning scene shot by their rescuer, Visbal and a friend named Gustavo can be seen maneuvering their vessel towards the suspended woman, who appears unresponsive. In fact, he initially mistook Geeta for a piece of driftwood until she raised her hands to signal for help.
The brave couple is heard in the clip who tries to get the attention of the inundated woman by calling in both Spanish and English. Unfortunately, Geeta is unable to answer, with later reports stating that she was suffering from exhaustion and hypothermia for eight hours.
The pair eventually, with some difficulty, use a rope attached to a life-saver to extract the raw part from the water they had thrown at him. Surya told that after being rescued the victim’s first words were, “I was born again.” God did not want me to die. ”
An attempt was made to further negotiate and give her water back as Gitan was shedding tears on camera, apparently overcoming her terrible behavior with emotion.
Luckily, the heroic fisherman managed to bring the survivors to shore, where he was reportedly lynched before being taken to the hospital by locals.
After Gita is identified, her sad background is revealed. As it turns out, the drunkard got out of touch with her family two years ago, and they had no idea where she was until now.
She later told RCN Radio that the intestinal abuse was the culmination of 20 years of domestic abuse, adding that she suffered at the hands of her partner.
“Abuse began in the first pregnancy. They beat me, they abused me, ”Gitan revealed in a shocking interview. “In my second pregnancy, the abuse continued and I could not get away from it because the girls were younger.”
Unfortunately, despite Geeta allegedly reporting the incidents, police detained Durachari for only 24 hours, after which he returned home and started assaulting her, the Mirror reported.
The tipping point came in September 2018 when, according to Geeta, her partner “broke my face and tried to kill me.” Unable to fill her stomach under any circumstances, the distraught woman ran away and resided in Barranquilla for six months. A last attempt to seek help at a homeless shelter failed and she fell into a deep depression.
“I didn’t want to continue my life,” said Geeta, who later took a bus to the beach and “decided to jump into the sea.” The survivor said that she remembers very little after the point she fainted.
Police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding Geeta’s disappearance and rescue.
Local media has located Geeta’s daughter Alejandra Castilenko, who along with her sister, is currently raising money to take Gogan to his home in Bogota.
