This is the heart-stopping moment a quick-thinking stranger saved the life of an unconscious jetskier who almost drowned after crashing into the waves.
While riding off Port Tampa Bay in Florida, a man spotted a fellow jetskier lying lifeless in the surf.
The stranger, who happened to be filming the scene, immediately rode over to the man who was lying face down and unconscious in the water.
Thinking quickly, he instantly jumped into the water and flipped the man over, keeping his head held up so he could breathe.
He repeatedly says, ‘I’ve got you, I’ve got you’, to the unconscious man as he drags him over to his abandoned jetski.
As the man is flipped over, a heavily-bleeding deep cut is revealed on his chin and blood seems to be coming out from his ears.
