Donovan said he became exhausted as he tried to keep the woman from going underwater, prompting Hamilton to jump in.

"I jumped straight in the water from the top level of the dock", Donovan, 34, told NBC.

Video of the incident shows the men in the water as the woman holds on to a life ring.

Together with onlookers atop the dock, Hamilton and Donovan pulled the young woman back up to safety.

The woman has not been identified, however a family member reportedly gave both Mr Donovan and Mr Hamilton a big hug. "We would have lost someone who is both a family member and a passenger".

The woman, a guest on the Carnival Fascination cruise ship, was with a family member when the chair fell into the water in the Virgin Islands on August 12, a spokesperson for Carnival Cruise Line tells PEOPLE.

"I can't lose my friend, so I jumped in", he said. If the ship had shifted a few yards, the three could have been crushed against the dock, Hamilton said.

And even walking down the street, Hamilton and Donovan said people recognize them and say they're "local heroes".

They say they will always remember the woman they saved. "I removed her from the wheelchair because I didn't want the wheelchair to sink with her in it".
