Also present at the scene was Kazuki Takahashi who had seen the distress of the three people. In turn, the mangaka jumped into the water to help. This was the last time the mangaka was seen alive by the witnesses present before he was engulfed by the waves.

He was found two days later in Nago, several kilometers northeast of Onna. According to the latest information provided, the mangaka was in diving gear when he was found dead.

Major Bourgeau specified to the military site that “ the conditions were really, really tough '. The latter succeeded in save two of the three victims, a mother and her daughter. Running out of strength after saving them, Major Bourgeau said he had to turn back to get the third person, a 39-year-old soldier, to avoid drowning. ' This is one of the hardest things I've had to do in my life “, he confided.

As for the courage and altruism of Kazuki Takahashi, Robert Bourgeau added: “ He's a hero. He [Takahashi] died trying to save someone else ».

The autopsy carried out on the body of Kazuki Takahashi thus confirms that he lost his life by drowning . The mangaka was 60 years old.
