    This is the bit I think that that chills me the most was I just remember hearing this voice say, Andrea, please don't let me die. And that was when I came out of that really tight mental focus of gotta stop the bleeding to kind of suddenly hearing people are shouting and I'd heard this voice and I knew this voice and I looked up. And it was my friend's son, who was 13 years old. makes me emotional because it suddenly was a huge amount of pressure. Jump in with both feet. Go Big. Follow your dreams
  • Callie King 00:42

    finding it. Join us for stories of dangerous travels wild animals, new challenges, and in the end, always learning alongside our magnificent horses. So saddle up and follow along. You're listening to grab life by the reins. I remember you telling me a story. About a time that you went in the thought you were just going for a relaxing walk on the beach. Yeah, and ended up saving someone's life.
  • Andrea Wady 01:32
    Yeah, that was crazy day. That was one of those days where you really do question there being something bigger than us. Like, I'm not a religious person, I'm a fairly spiritual person. But this day changed everything and took it to just being in or of something bigger than ourselves. I
  • Callie King 01:57
    guess. Before we go into kind of the play by play of what happened. Just give us what you felt afterwards, when you were coming home from this. Oh, what was going through your mind? Or what were you? What were you feeling?
  • Andrea Wady 02:14
    I honestly what went through my mind was, what are you supposed to do with the rest of today? By the time that was all finished, it was maybe 10 o'clock in the morning. And I remember thinking, What do I do with the rest of my day? My husband and I looked each other and we're like, well, now what?
  • Callie King 02:36
    I think the first step was you probably need to get in the shower. Right? Because you had quite a bit of blood on you. Yeah.
  • Andrea Wady 02:41
    Yeah, it was covered. It was crazy. I think the first thing that we did after the event. We drank tequila. I will be quite honest. At 10 o'clock in the morning. Yeah. Yeah, we all congregated at the yoga studio with our friends. And Alex came out with a bottle of tequila and went, there is nothing else to do with today. We need this and we all went. Yes, we do. And we drank a few two kilos. And I'll be honest, it kind of knocked us past the shock. And we were able to come out of ourselves and be a bit more animated. And cry. Yeah, I mean, it's not a sad story. It ended okay. But, you know, it was a lot, a lot for the nervous system and the mind and the body to process for sure.
  • Callie King 03:35
    And in that moment, right after, you know, hours after it happened. You still didn't know exactly how it was going to turn out. If it was going to be a very sad story. No,
  • Andrea Wady 03:45
    we didn't know we were just waiting. Yeah, we were just waiting. I think exhaustion. I think we just needed to sleep. I mean, for the family. It was a million times worse. Their exhaustion hadn't even begun, because they had months ahead of them. But yeah, for us it was And and I think I think the hardest bit afterwards was everybody wanting to know. Thankfully, you know, we didn't have the full thing where we constantly had a cell phone in our hand like we do in this day and age. I mean, I think it's probably about 12 years ago. It was while we were in Costa Rica.
  • Callie King 04:24
    So tell us now how your day started. And what led you to being out on the beach when this happened.
  • Andrea Wady 04:31
    So normally in the mornings, Chris would always surf. Often I would surf but if we were going to play out on Elsa, where we lived, I didn't really serve that beach. It was a bit of a heavier surfing spot. So Chris was going to surf and I was going to walk the dogs on the beach like I did most mornings and he said, You know, I don't think I'm gonna surf today. I always remember it's gonna it was rainy season. So it was like September, October. I think either August, September, October, I'm not one of these people that really remembers dates and like, this is the day this happened. I, I don't live like that. I tend to just each day as it comes, I'm in it. But it was rainy season. And he was like, you know, I'm not going to surf. Today, I'll come with you for a walk. And I can remember as we were going out the door, folded by the door was this sarong. And I always remember it was yellow with these Little, Brown, tiny little flowers on it. And it was so pretty. And I bought it in a market somewhere. And I hadn't worn it yet. And I thought, oh, and I picked it up. And I remember distinctly saying to Chris, I'm so glad I bought this wrong. And I'm gonna take it with me to the beach. And I remember thinking, that was a really weird thing to say. I'm so glad I bought it. I thought it was a strange thing to say didn't think anything of it, wrapped it around myself. I always used to just jump in the car in a bikini and go to the beach in a bikini because it's, you know, a bazillion degrees. But I put the sarong around me, we got to where we usually park and we would always normally go on to the beach and head left, because it's away from all of the people not that it was a busy beach but would generally go that way. And this day, Chris said you know what? Let's change it up. Let's go. Right? Sit Okay, let's, let's go right. So we're walking down the beach, and we're just chatting and holding hands and just having a lovely morning. And we saw someone coming in from the waves on their surfboard, just caught our attention. And surfers normally will kick out from a wave, ride the next one in on their belly or whatever. And then hop off in sort of knee deep water and walk out the water. And this didn't happen. The person on the board did something that surfers don't normally do. Because surfboards have fins in the bottom of the board to help turn it. What happened was a surfer came in on a wave on his belly and went all the way up onto the sand. And then the wave drew back to the ocean and he was on dry land. And Chris distinctly said What on earth is he doing is going to wreck his surfboard. And I don't know why. But I was just staring at him. And I was like something's not right. Something's not right.
  • Callie King 07:30
    How far away was he when you first saw him coming out of the water?
  • Andrea Wady 07:33
    Maybe 100 meters, something like that maybe a bit long, further? Yeah, maybe a bit further, maybe 200 meters. And I remember seeing him stand up and I thought I heard shouting. And he just didn't look right. And growing up with horse's body language is a real focus for me. And I was like something's not right. And I just started running. And Chris said to me, what are you doing? I'm like, he's hurt himself. He's like, he's fine. Don't be a lunatic. What are you doing? I'm like, something's not right. And then it became apparent to Chris as well that something was not right. And the beach was pretty much deserted. We could hear him yelling and yelling and yelling. So we ran towards him. And as we got closer and closer, we could see he was really badly injured. And that, well, I won't be too graphic but a large part of his lower leg was no longer attached to his leg. It was lying in the sand. It was really bad. And he was shouting. I've been attacked by a shark immediately seemed really unusual because whilst there are a lot of sharks in Costa Rica, it's very, very, very rare to ever hear of anyone being attacked by one. Anyway, we ran in I didn't even look at who it was. I was just focusing on the leg and knew that we needed to stop the bleeding because it was bleeding really bad. And I had the sarong and you know I grew up in surf club in England. I know a lot of people listening to like surf club in England. Yeah, we're an island in the Atlantic. We have really good surf. And we had Surf Lifesaving club, just like they do an Australia and all those places. So I knew I needed to get a tourniquet on his leg and I had my sarong, which normally I wouldn't have had. I could have used the leg rope from the surfboard, but I was focusing on the sarong, but I couldn't rip it. And Chris had scooped up the person to stop them collapsing into the sand because rightly so he's thinking we don't need sand packed into this massive wound. I couldn't rip the sarong. And Chris was you know, not yelling at me in a bad way. Just go and get it rip, get it read. So I can't I can't repeat it. And I remember distinctly saying to myself, if there's a God up there now I need you right now. I need help now. And there's no one around, suddenly there was your voice right behind me. Turned out in years to come, he would be my neighbor. But there was this man who I'd seen around a few times. And he just appeared at my shoulder and he said, Can I help. And he was the man that ran the Christian surface chapter in Costa Rica, where we were from. And I remember thinking, My God, he must have a direct line or something to God, because he's just come up out the sand, in my opinion, obviously, he'd seen us and come down, and he was able to tie it off. But just before he came to help, and this is the bit I think that that chills me the most was I just remember hearing this voice say, Andrea, please don't let me die. And that was when I came out of that really tight mental focus have got to stop the bleeding to kind of suddenly hearing people are shouting, and I'd heard this voice and I knew this voice, and I looked up. And it was my friend's son, who was 13 years old. makes me emotional, because it suddenly was a huge amount of pressure, that I knew this person, it would have been easier if I didn't, I think, anyway, the boys took over. And I knew we needed a car. And in Costa Rica, you know, you ring an ambulance, it's maybe going to come, it's maybe not going to come. We didn't have time to ring an ambulance. And that was kind of by now there was our friend, Alex, myself, Doug, from Christian Surfers, and Chris, and we were just together. And they were like, Get the car. And I looked in my car was too far away. I'd walk too far to get it and Alex's car was too far the other way. But I could see this car coming down the road because there was a beach road that ran right behind the the sand. And there was this car coming. So I just made a beeline for it, intercepted it by throwing myself across the front of the car, stop the car. And these poor people, I didn't think to tell them. What had happened. I just ran around started opening the back doors. I think they thought they were getting carjacked. They were just like, What the F bomb are you doing? And I was like, oh my god, I'm so sorry. And I was putting seats down on every car. It's really comical. But they were just like, What are you doing? And I, I just pointed and at that point, Chris and Alex and Doug had got the boy up to the side of the road. And I just pointed out I couldn't use words I just pointed and they were like, whatever you need, whatever you need. And really, at this point, we should bring Chris in my husband because he can tell us his perspective. You started loading him in the car, didn't you Chris?
  • Speaker 1 12:59
    Yeah, basically, we've we've got his leg wrapped up in a in a beach towel. Because there really was kind of holding it all together. We had his taller carry on.
  • Andrea Wady 13:10
    And it was at this point that a few other people were gathering around. And I always remember there was this woman just screaming and screaming and screaming. And we were just like, get her away. Like if you're not part of the solution, you are a giant part of the problem. So go away. And thankfully, this boy had grown up in a competitive motocross lifestyle. His father was a really good motocross professional motorbike rider. And he'd been taught if you get hurt you lock on to whoever is going to get you out of this problem. So he'd really locked on to my husband and Alex.
  • Speaker 1 13:52
    So we basically loaded this poor lad into the back of the car, and we all jumped in and just sort of the like drive drive drive. And he he was basically really not being very cohesive at all. So I'm just kept looking at him and kept sort of saying, Just stay with me, stay with me keep looking at me. You know, don't go to sleep, you know, if we won't be long, you know, we'll have you into the clinic and all that all of these kinds of things.
  • Andrea Wady 14:21
    And they all just looked at me and said go and get his parents. And they just drove off. Because they had to they had to go he we he was now starting to go into shock and come in and out of consciousness a little bit. And they just drove away. And I was just left standing by the side of the road going, Oh my God.
  • Speaker 1 14:44
    We were literally about halfway in there when we suddenly realized that the poor couple that were driving us in they were actually on their honeymoon. And yeah, we were we were giving them a hell of a day. But anyway, so we were driving on in there and the poor lab was doing the very best he could he was driving like a rally driver and we We have one near miss overtaking a car with a Mack truck coming the other way. And we were like, well, we need all calm down a minute because we need to actually make it in our life. He was stoic as for a young lad, he was taking it all in his stride. I can't even imagine how much it was hurting to him.
  • Andrea Wady 15:14
    So his parents, I jumped in the car, they lived right at the top of the mountain up this really, really sketchy road that I didn't even like, driving up. It was horrible, homemade, like mountain road. So I just got it in first gear and floored it all the way up there. And I remember looking down at myself and going, Oh, my God, I'm going to their house. I'm wearing a bikini. And I'm pretty much covered in blood. It had gone everywhere. And I was trying to wipe it off. I remember that. They owned several properties up on that road. And there was the dad on the side of the road. And he's looking at me, like what is this woman doing? Her engine is screaming because I haven't changed. Hope like was just rev revved up going up the mountain and he saw me and went, what are you doing? You're going to blow up your engine. And I was like, you know, there's been an accident and it's bad. I'm quite a pragmatic person. I thought there's no point in saying this has happened. But don't worry, everything's gonna be alright, because I wasn't sure it was an the sense of urgency kind of needed to be conveyed. So he jumped on his motorbike and went down the hill, and said, Go and get my wife. So I drove to the house and I remember beeping the horn, and she came out and she's just she's such a beautiful person. She was like, Yay, you've come to hang out. And I was I couldn't speak. And I was just had this real sense of I am about to blow your world to pieces. And I have this knowledge. And right at this second. You don't. And it was it just felt so horrible that I had that knowledge. And I had to tell her, and I remember she started swaying. And I thought, Oh my God. And then she is such a badass, she just kicked in, and was like, let's go get in the car. So we got in the car and we drove straight to the clinic where they were taking him. We were yelling at cars out the window to get out of our way. And it was just crazy. And then we got to the clinic and he was already in with the doctors. More
  • Speaker 1 17:41
    chaos ensued because they wanted to take him by ambulance up to the main city because he needed obviously he was losing a lot of blood and and all of these kinds of things.
  • Andrea Wady 17:51
    They were no way equipped to deal with what had happened.
  • Speaker 1 17:56
    And they wanted to drive him and they're like no, we want a helicopter we will pay will get a helicopter will medivac him up there. There was just utter chaos. And then there was massive arguments going on. Eventually they ended up taking them out in an ambulance because they didn't have time to wait. And they were going to take him off to the local hospital where he could get a blood transfusion.
  • Andrea Wady 18:17
    By this point, the doctor had established that he'd actually been attacked by a crocodile, not a shark. And how did he know something to do with the bite? And also I seem to remember one shark. And how did he know something to do with the bite? And also I seem to remember one of the other surfers had been shouting at the beach. It was a crocodile I saw it i i It was in the lineup, which from time to time did happen, especially in rainy season because they would get washed out the rivers or come into the ocean to warm up a bit. But their vision was not so good in the saltwater because they were from the river. But no one had ever been attacked before. But actually there's a piece to this that made me think of the story about your father and your father's cousin. Were having a catastrophic motorbike accident one year apart it turned out that someone got I can't remember exactly but someone got attacked again by crocodile on the same date a year or two years later Wow different beach but exactly the same day kind of blew everyone's mind
  • Callie King 19:23
    now we'll crocodiles will they actually attack on an open water like that? Or was it a case of wrong place? Wrong time someone you know
  • Andrea Wady 19:32
    I wouldn't like to hedge your bet that they would never attack but they have a bite reflex. A friend of ours Jose's an expert in crocodiles and he what he believed happened was the boy was surfing on the wave kicked out dropped into the water I happen to land next to the crocodile and it bit it's just a reflexive something's flashes beside them, they'll turn and snap and got him. And he told us afterwards that he could tell, he confirmed that he thought afterwards that it was a crocodile because it tried to pull him under, which is what they will do, and then they'll spin you. And it tried to pull him down. But thankfully, he was really, really smart. And he wrapped his arms around his surfboard, probably instinctually. But he did. And that made him so much heavier that I think it thought it was too big. And it had hold of his lower leg and was trying to bring him down. But the buoyancy from the board meant he let go. And then he let go, and a wave just came and took him and ran him up the beach.
  • Callie King 20:42
    So he was really locked on it to, to us specifically, like in that car. And when you were driving to the hospital, yeah, entirely.
  • Speaker 1 20:51
    I mean, bless him, I think because he comes from a family there. His dad was a motocross rider, and he's in a very, very adventurous kind of kid. I think, thanks to him, he knew that he was kind of handing off a responsibility to someone to look after him. Because he sort of vaguely knew me. And because literally from where I was sitting in the car, he was just staring at me the whole time. And I just kept saying, you know, you're gonna be alright, you're gonna be alright. Just stay with me. And he and he kept sort of like, obviously, the adrenaline was wearing off of him. And he started shutting his eyes. And I kept sort of saying, Don't Don't shut your eyes. Just Just keep looking at me make the old time you look at me, I can make everything right. But just if you shut your eyes, you're on your own meats as just stay with me. And he was just literally staring at me the whole way. And it was quite a quite a haunting look from a young lad. That's, that knows the kind of trouble that he's in. Yeah, but are testament to the Lord, that, that he was calm and collected and resigned to the fact that we were doing everything we could for him. And he just had to stay with us. And literally, yeah, do as he was told. And we were going to look out for him because a lot of other kids would have been panicking and screaming and shouting, and that would have made the situation literally a million times worse. But ya know, he was a stoic lad, he really was and that, and that certainly went in his favor. No doubt about that. And what
  • Callie King 22:17
    did it feel like to you, having him focused on you and knowing how much that was helping him? When the doctors made everyone leave? It made you leave?
  • Speaker 1 22:27
    Well, it was terrifying to me that he was looking at me expecting me. I suppose you could say save his life. I never really thought that I was saving his life. Because I think only because I didn't dare ever think that. My my conscious, my subconscious mind knew exactly the dangerous situation that we were in. There's no doubt about that. But and then when the guy was kicking us out, I mean, you see it on every TV movie where doctors throw everyone out so they can get on and do what they got to do. So that's kind of what happens and you step out and you do what you got to do. But this was one, one fairly young doctor in a very small town, doctor's clinic, that, you know, it wasn't like you're walking into the major trauma unit of some massive hole in a hospital in some huge, you know, city where everything's at hand. So, so being thrown out. I mean, I just remember sort of saying to him, You're in great hands now you're going to be fine. And then we were literally manhandled, pushed out the door. And as we were coming out the door, there were nurses running in bringing in, you know, bandages and swabs and all of the stuff. It never really, to be honest, it never really dawned on me that we should have stayed with them. And it wasn't until after was that we were told that he nearly went into, into like a really bad shock that it really dawned on us that we should have actually put our foot down and said, No, we're not going to stay with him. You just do what you got to do in these situations. And you're really at the end of the day, as he drove out. And and that stillness ensued. We've been all running on adrenaline and, and like, you know, doing what you got to do to get through these kinds of things. And literally two minutes after the ambulance drove out. We all just literally slid down the wall.
  • Andrea Wady 24:20
    Yeah, our legs just went out from underneath system. Yeah, yeah. And
  • Speaker 1 24:23
    it's like, you know, what do you do after you've done something like that in the morning. It was a strange old feeling when it all goes quiet.
  • Andrea Wady 24:31
    But when we saw him leaving the ambulance, we didn't know whether we'd see him again. And we were all super focused and super calm. Until the minute that ambulance left. I didn't pass out but I just had nothing left in my nervous system to cope with it and all the strengths went out of my legs and kind of really makes me appreciate how incredible our bodies are. That my body just took over. And when you've done what you you needed to do. You have to stop right now. I just slipped to the floor and I stayed there for a good 20 minutes, I think, before I could move. But it turned out, okay, he had 13 operations, I think, on his leg, they grafted new nerves. I don't know what the actual terminology is, but he's gone on to lead a fantastic life. And yeah, it was one of those ones that community came together. The right people were where they were meant to be, for whatever reason at that time, and I was just glad we could help. Yeah,
  • Callie King 25:41
    we never know which direction our day is gonna go when we walk out that door. And I think that that's true for anywhere. But it seems to happen with a higher likelihood in Latin America. And in places in the world where there's just not the same infrastructure and also in flow and activities like surfing, there's more risk. And for us as writers, we know we do things where there's risk.
  • Andrea Wady 26:09
    Yeah, absolutely. And then you throw wild animals in the mix. And I don't think anyone and certainly in Costa Rica, they wouldn't have it any other way. They truly wouldn't. You know, those crocodiles are where they're meant to be. The sharks are where they're meant to be. We are in their playground. Yeah, the young man who got attacked, he probably doesn't realize this, but he will always have a piece of me a piece of my heart.
  • Callie King 26:39
    You mentioned that this happened when he was 13.
  • Andrea Wady 26:42
    Hate? Yes, I think he was 13. And
  • Callie King 26:45
    we've both had really big things happen at age 13.
  • Andrea Wady 26:48
    Yeah. How interesting is that? Yeah. Crazy. Yeah. How interesting is that? Yeah. Crazy.
  • Callie King 26:53
    Yeah, that's, that's the interesting thing about life is that there's so much that we don't understand. And then I think in this human realm, we won't understand why things happen. What's random, what's not, it's just, it's too big. And I think that's the challenge in trying to assign meaning to everything or pretend that we've got it figured out. Or even worse, as you mentioned, telling someone else trying to explain to someone else, what might have happened. It's just, it's big and accepting that level of, we don't know. But we just keep flowing through life and show up in each moment, the best we can.
  • Andrea Wady 27:35
    I completely agree. And I think sometimes you can assign too much meaning. I can remember one instance, where someone had got injured with a horse. They'd got run over by the horse leading it or I can't remember what happened. But they their face was battered. And I can remember an instructor saying, Whatever happened in your life was due to how come you were or how come you weren't. And the woman was putting the blame on herself, or clearly this happened, because I was not calm enough. And it's like, I just think sometimes things happen. And it's not your fault that things happen. They just do. But it's what you do afterwards. That counts.
  • Callie King 28:20
    Yeah. And you mentioned the woman who was screaming, and how in in, in situations like that, when something bad goes down. People can react in so many different ways. Yeah, I remember when I was driving with two friends in Mexico. And we were also surfing, we were going from one beach and we were driving at night, we were going to camp and then surf in the morning and another beach. And we came across a man who had just wrecked on his motorcycle. And he the motorcycle was down, we couldn't tell what happened because it was a fairly straight stretch of road. But the motorcycle was down, the man was laying on the road. And we immediately stopped. He was just coming back to consciousness as we stopped. So we also didn't know how long ago it had happened. But the two people that I were with both last it. I mean, they were like, kind of the equivalent of running in circles and yelling. And this was also soon after I moved to Mexico. So my language skills. It's hard enough for me, you know, communicating in those kinds of situations when everyone's emotions are high in my second language in English. Good. But, but there's several scenarios. It's one when there's a language barrier and to being in a place where I don't know the culture and where I'm the person outside of the culture. Because we were we were the first on the scene. We went over the guys just come into consciousness. They were they were trying to communicate to him him, but in such a frantic way that it was only, you know, not helping, not helping at all. And I didn't have the communication skills, and there was too much noise to even be able to. And in those situations, it was really challenging for me because I know what to do, you know, stabilize him, Where does he have? Where does he have sensation, like speak calmly help him as he's coming back. So I also know that feeling of coming back to consciousness after an accident, it's extremely disorienting. Especially if everyone's screaming and more people started arriving, then, you know, that had been on the road that we're passing, and then started stopping. And it ended up with like, 12 people, everyone yelling different instructions and different reasons. And I think he was drunk. And I think it was this and this, and pulling his helmet off, which is, oh, my gosh, the worst thing to do when they're totally chaotic, someone laying in unknown injuries, and then carrying him and putting him in the back of a car. And off he goes. So I don't know the outcome of of the story. I don't know what happened. But it was, it was really challenging for me to watch, because I had so much empathy to this man's state, and not knowing what his injuries were, what severity they were. And just having that utter chaos. So I think of this with the story of the boy that you that you helped that you saved his life. And it is so good for him in that situation. That you and Chris and the other people there, were able to keep that sense of calm. Yeah. And were able to, you know, see, what was there, assess it, act respond. Yeah. And not get caught up in the emotion of it.
  • Andrea Wady 31:45
    Yeah. And it's funny, isn't it? Because I assumed everyone would respond the same way that we did. And afterwards, people go, I don't know how you did it. And, frankly, I found that all really awkward. Like, I didn't want to talk to anyone about it. I certainly didn't want people, you know, giving us a giant pat on the back. Like it was awkward. And I just didn't want to talk about it. It was really upsetting. I was just like, leave us alone, please. But people I wouldn't have been able to do that. Well, yeah, of course you would. And then, but I've learned as time has gone on, actually, a lot of people freeze. And, you know, we know in with horses fight flight or freeze. It's a way that humans and animals cope with life.

And I think it was a really great thing to be able to do that. Because if you can do it young enough, then it's kind of a blueprint of how you react when there is something in life. But the story turned out good. He's well, and I'm really grateful for that and that we were able to help him but yeah, it was it was quite the day. Yes, yes.
