A South Florida realtor on a paramotor suddenly found himself helping save a woman’s life Sunday morning.
“It was totally a God thing,” says realtor Christiano Piquet. “I was just at the right place at the right time.”
Piquet uses his paramotor to get a bird’s eye video of properties he’s selling.
What he initially thought was an alligator in the nearby canal—turned out to be a car.
“When I flew closer to the car, I saw a woman,” says Pique.
In a video he took, the woman was screaming for help.
After landing, he flagged down a nearby neighbor and asked for rope.
“Because I was in the air, I was the only person who could see the situation,” says Pique.
After several minutes, the neighbor could get the rope around the woman’s hand and bring her to safety.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue arrived moments later to take her to a nearby hospital.
It is unclear how and when the woman drove into the canal.
CBS 4 reached out to MDFR for an update on the woman’s condition and has not heard back.
