Experience Description

I was crossing the reservoir with one of my friends without bathing suits, putting up the trousers. I was poor at swimming and I miscalculated the width of the reservoir, I made a mistake 500~500 M for 150~200 M. when reaching the middle of the reservoir, My trousers fell down and I had a cramp. I pull down my trousers and threw it to my friend, and I was sunk into the water. It was dark and stuffy. I popped out of the water and I drew my breath, and the water sunk me down again. It was dark and stuffy again. I got out of the water and breathed again and I went down into the water three times. I felt languid and feeble and saw the bright light. I am calm and no panic, no breathless. I felt very good. My body and mind felt completely peaceful. It seemed that I was under the water for a long time. I wanted to stay there but I headed upwards and raised my hand because I felt a little stuffy. I reached the top of the water very quickly. I could see a boat around me. I went down into the water again. When I popped out of the water again, the boat came to me.
