Strange photos of the World Swimming Championships in Budapest. American synchronized swimmer Anita Alvarez lost consciousness after her workout and was rescued from the bottom of the pool by her coach.
Alvarez slowly sank to the bottom of the pool after her workout and coach Andrea Fuentes did not hesitate for a moment. The multiple Olympic medalist followed her student.
