IT happened yesterday at my local Lido . I went for a dip I say dip because of my coordination problems I have not been able to swim for six yeas in fact that is why I first went the doctor. I was not far from the rail in the shallow end ( water depth about 1 metre) when I tried to to do few strokes of course it was not successful but when I tried to stand up i could not but was stuck in a strange position with my face firmly in the water my feet on the floor and my back arched all i could do was push at the water with my hands to try get my face out. Well after about two minutes of this I next found myself at the pool side being revived. Apparently I had stopped breathing and was blue when they pulled me out the life guard then slapped my back and I started to breath again. the strange thing was I found that the time between me losing consciousness and coming around
was not unpleasant but a really weird dream which I could not try to explain. has anyone else had similar experiences ?
