Hannah helped pull a man from the river after the raft he was on flipped. Her family pulled him onto their raft. She has yet to comment on the incident, however the man’s girlfriend wanted the world to know how awesome Hannah and her family are.
Girlfriend says Hannah and family are very down to earth
US Weekly shared more details about the rescue and what went down next. Alex Quintana is the girlfriend of Milton Sangabriel. Milton is the gentleman Hannah helped pull from the river. She said the DWTS winner and her family were very down to earth. They were so much to hang out with once everyone was safe.
Alex said, “I see why they call her Hannah Beast because the woman is strong!” She continued, “After we recovered from the flip, we all stopped by some big rocks and took turns jumping into the river. It was a great time! Even her mom and dad did it (my parents would NEVER) as Hannah and the gang cheered them on!”
For most of the day Alex and Milton had no idea who Hannah was. Towards the end of the day they were told by her mom who she was. Alex said, “[Her] whole family was so sweet and down-to-earth, just not what I pictured a famous person would be like, honestly.” She went on, “Her mom told me she was The Bachelorette and had just won the last season of Dancing With the Stars! It was so adorable how proud she was of her daughter and her accomplishments.”
The Browns saved Milton from the river
Hannah has not addressed the incident publicly. Alex was the one to share the details of what happened on Saturday. She tweeted out that Hannah Brown had saved her boyfriend from drowning on the Ocoee River.
Alex shared video of the rescue on Instagram. She captioned it saying, “To clarify @miltonsangabriel93 was not literally drowning (I’m prone to being dramatic) but most of us did get beat up by rocks in the river after we flipped. IT. WAS. AWESOME. 😎🤘🏽💪🏼 If you’re here for Hannah she and her fam appear during the second half of the video about 2 min in.”
While Hannah remains humble and has not said anything about the experience, her brother mentioned it. Patrick Brown went to Instagram to share a photo of himself and his sister. He captioned saying, “Took on the rapids with the fam jam! I got to relive my lifeguard days and Hannah thinks she’s apart of the Coast Guard now… #rescuemission • •
Check out @ocoee_watersports for a killer time 🙌🏻🤘🏼.”
