Did you ever meet up with the most deadliest fear, the fear of death?

The most unforgettable event in my life. When I was in my teens, I went out on a picnic with my friends. We found a place nearby a lake as the best one to spend rest of the day. The lake was so beatiful and waters so calm, it made us get into it. While we were playing and enjoying ourselves in those shallow waters, unknowingly we were moving deeper into it. Suddenly, I felt that I could no longer reach the bottom of the lake with my feet. My god! I don't know how to swim. I struggled myself to reach the surface and shout out to my friends. No hopes. No one could hear me. I felt some one close to me. To my surprise, that was one of my other friend. He too was trapped. I could clearly see him struggling to reach the surface. Oh my god. It was only a matter of few seconds, I started to feel that I have no more hope. When suddenly I felt some one grabbing my hand and pulling me out. My friend too was pulled out. What a experience close to death ! Thank god. That though increased my fear to water also made me learn swimming within a week.

Yeah i guess it would be scary but i just cant EVER understand why people - who cant swim, insist on going in to the water in the first place. We have a TV show in Australia called Bondi Rescue where they show all the different kids of dangers there are in the Bondi surf & to no-one's surprise, the main of the people who get trapped & in to trouble, then need rescuing are the people who cant swim & who arent from Australia - yet they always go in to the water. It's just like the life guards always say, you need to have respect for water & many people who cant swim don't seem to have the respect for water that they should have!
