This is a cool story, two women are swept out from a beach in their kayak in Portugal, a man tries to help right the kayak and a 71 year old man swims out to assist them. He is Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, the President.
they will be dining out on that one for a while!The president had just spoken to journalists at Praia do Alvor beach when he noticed the women struggling.
Video footage caught the moment he swam into the sea to assist them. Another man was already there, trying to help turn the canoe over while a person on a jet ski also approached to offer help.
The man on the jet ski then managed to tow the kayak back to the shore.
