My sister Maria and I were swimming in the open sea near the beach of San Javier when suddenly the water under us became dark and enormous tentacles came out of the sea. Our anxiety began when we saw the creature they were belonged to. It grabbed us with a violent move and drowned us like rag dolls. Seeing this, I prayed very hard to the Virgin of Guadalupe for help and rescue. After we almost fainted, the beast let us go, and we could go back to the shore. I testify this miracle.

Virgin of San Juan, I offer you this exvoto for protecting me from dying when I was trying my luck and fell off the camel. I’m grateful for that.
