A teenager from Wielkopolska, during a training camp on Lake Garda, noticed that one of the girls unfortunately and painfully hit her head against a boom and her boat capsized. Chojnicka reacted to this situation – she swam to her friend and helped her into her boat. After that, she jumped into the lake, set the overturned boat down and handed it over to the injured sailor.
