I nearly drowned as a kid..
I had just learnt to swim and we were at this lake to chill. I was about 8-9 at the time. My parents went for a swim so I was by myself and I started swimming without realizing the lake got deep really fast. I swam around a little and then stopped, in a place where it was a little deeper and I started sinking. This woman nearby pulled me up. Freaked me out pretty good at the time.
