Anita Alvarez finished her routine in the artistic solo free final in Budapest when she lost consciousness and began sinking.
The 25-year-old’s coach, four-time Olympic medallist Andrea Fuentes, dived in and carried her back to the surface.
Alvarez has fainted following a routine before, passing out during an Olympic qualifier in Barcelona last year.
Fuentes came to the rescue on that occasion too.
