It happened at the Veracruz seaport. Guillermo Mendez Velasquez was unloading sorghum when suddenly the hoist cable broke. He fell down the water with all packages and went to the bottom. He was buried under the sacks for more than seven minutes. That deadly moment he was able to implore the Holy Trinity. His coworkers managed to pull him out. He was brought back to life only thanks to defibrillation and the divine intervention. He dedicates this retablo as gratitude.
