But luckily, through the help of some authorities and lifeguards who immediately attend to their concerns, these missing children are then back to their families arms. However, not for the two women who remain distressed after their 3-year-old child remained missing for quite some time even with the help of the authorities.
Based on the source, a man named Jesse Martin, who also happened to be on the beach overheard their misery and concern of the two women. Without hesitation, he immediately volunteered to help them.
Martin was then helped by his two uncles on searching for the missing child. Looking through the area where the child was reported missing, Martin and his companions noticed a number of children who were digging the sand.
Curious and suspicious at the same time, Martin followed his instinct and jumped on the hole. Uncertain of what he might be seeing, he still dug the hole as fast he can.

“We started digging and Jesse found this little boy… and pulled him out. He was ash gray.”
The rescued child was then brought to the nearest hospital where he was given the immediate medical attention. According to the source, the child is now recovering from suffocation.
