Mother Gives Her Life to Save Her Children after Shipwreck – She Breastfed Them for Days

Tragic Venezuelan mother saved her two children after shipwreck by BREASTFEEDING them for four days while she drank her own urine before finally d.y.i.n.g

She was left adrift with her kids, found clinging to their dead mum, and their 25-year-old nanny Veronica Martinez for four days in baking temperatures after heading out on a boat trip with family and friends that turned to disaster after a huge wave smashed the vessel’s hull

A mother has saved her two children after a shipwreck by breastfeeding them for four days while she drank her own urine – before she finally d.i.e.d.

Mariely Chacon, 40, kept Jose David and Maria Beatriz Camblor Chacon alive after their boat was destroyed by a wave following a trip to an island in the Atlantic Ocean.

Officials from INEA stated that this mother managed to help her 6-year-old son Jose David and her 2-year-old daughter Maria Beatriz Camblor Chacón survive by drinking her own urine and breastfeeding them.

The nanny was found in a small fridge where she had reportedly taken refuge to stay out of the sweltering heat. The kids and nanny were rushed to hospital so they could be treated for dehydration and first-degree burns

Rescuers found the children holding their mother’s body on the remains of the vessel and they were rushed to hospital with dehydration and first-degree burns.

The mother and her children had been on the boat with their nanny – who also survived by hiding in a fridge to escape the heat.

The family left Higuerote in their native Venezuela for the uninhabited Caribbean island of La Tortuga aboard the vessel Thor de Higuerote, an Intermarine 229 leisure boat

But five others – including Chacon’s husband and the children’s father Remis David Camblor – are still m.i.ssing.

It has been officially confirmed that the 40-year-old mother herself passed away from organ failure from dehydration. It is estimated that she d.i.e.d only three to four hours before the rescuers found them.

A source quoted by newspaper La República said the mother’s vital organs had collapsed because of electrolyte depletion.

They were found adrift four days after leaving Higuerote on September 3 for the island La Tortuga around 56 miles off the Venezuelan coast

As this selfless mother embodied, the love people tend to have for their families sometimes defies human understanding. 

Mariely Chacon, 40, sacrificed her own life to save those of her six-year-old son and two-year-old daughter by trying to stave off dehydration so they had a fighting chance of surviving the harrowing shipwrec

In one case, the tables were turned, where the child saved the mother.

Hurricane Ida tore through the lives of those in New York City. 47-year-old Danette Rivera, attempting to escape from the storm, ran to her basement. Moments later, it quickly began filling up with water, almost touching the ceiling, with Rivera unable to escape.

Her 29-year-old son, blind in both eyes, found her as he followed her cries for help through the basement’s slit window open and pulled her out. Although cliche, the adage that family comes first, rings true for both of these incidents.
