SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A San Diego woman is searching for the hero who saved her from drowning after a cliff dive at Sunset Cliffs.

“I think the ocean really taught me a lesson that day. It really did,” Justice Arreguin said.

It happened a week ago Sunday.

Arreguin was with some friends when she jumped off the cliff into the water. The first jump was fine, she said. But when she jumped the second time, it almost killed her.

The big waves pulled her under and tossed her around. She couldn't breathe.

“Then this guy he just popped out of nowhere and he was like 'you have to stay calm. Try to stay calm,'" Arreguin said. "And so I did and after a while, he jumped in the water when it was safe."

The man pulled justice out. She never got his name.

Arreguin wants to meet him again and thank him.
