A 55-year-old surfer was rescued by firefighters after being adrift for four hours in the sea in the city of Florianópolis, in Santa Catarina.

The man was practicing the sport at Praia do Morro das Pedras, on the coast of the city, when he ended up being carried away by the water, which presented unexpected adverse conditions. The waves of up to two meters that formed in the agitated sea of ​​the capital of Santa Catarina dragged the surfer to the sea.

The Fire Department reported that, upon being rescued, the surfer showed signs of exhaustion. It was removed from the water using the “Puçá technique”, in which a basket is used to lift people out of the water.

Firefighters also said that despite signs of exhaustion, the man was assessed while still on the beach and allowed to return home.
