Amongst the many Greeks in Greece and abroad that jumped into the cold waters to retrieve the cross and get the priest's blessing on Holy Epiphany Day there was one lady that stood out.

A yiayia in Dilesi, Greece surprised everyone whan fully clothed - in a coat, with tights and shoes on - not to mention carrying a handbag, she jumped into the sea and walked on water catching the cross before anyone else had a change to take the image in.

One of the local parishioners, Aggelos Mavrokefalidis, captured the incident on video and later uploaded it on Facebook getting thousands of comments and dozens of shares.
