"So we kept walking, and when we got over there, there was a guy in the water, saying, 'Man, they're all stuck out there, the riptide's pulled them out, I tried to go out there; if I go any farther, I'm going to get stuck'". "When someone like me can swim, why not use your abilities to help someone?"
Alongside her husband and the help of those forming the human chain, Ms Simmons shuttled people to safety on her bodyboard.
"These people are not dying today", she recalled telling herself. But then they got stuck in the riptide, too. I owe my life and my family's life to them.
Roberta Ursrey together with her husband, sons, nephews, and mother were enjoying the day at the M.B. Miller County Pier, Panama City Beach, Florida on Saturday afternoon. One by one, each of the swimmers who was caught in the tide was back safely on shore thanks to that chain.
Luckily, fellow beachgoer Jessica Simmons noticed the growing crowd on shore pointing toward the Ursreys as they struggled against the current.
Simmons believed she could save Usrey's family from downing.
"I honestly thought I was going to lose my family that day", Ursrey told NWFDailyNews.com. "I knew I could get them to the human chain of people that wanted to help", she stated.
Starting with the children, the rescuers towed the swimmers along the human chain and pulled them to shore, the newspaper reported.
"To see people from different races and genders come into action to help TOTAL strangers is absolutely unbelievable, " said Ms Simmons. She suffered a massive heart attack and an aortic aneurysm in her stomach, but has been taken off the ventilator and is considered to be in stable condition. Ursey referred to those courageous men and women on the beach that pulled them out as "God's angels". She was resuscitated and is recovering in the hospital.
"It actually showed me there are good people in this world", Ursrey told The Post.
Jessica Simmons said the drowning victims were asking for a flotation device and there were people standing on the beach. "They were so fearless to get out there and risk their lives to save others", said Beckton, who offered her CPR services on shore.
