My memory of the moments between realizing I was drowning a mere foot from the dock, and hadn't the strength to get back to the surface, and finding myself on the dock
nstead of staying in the shallow water, I ventured out into the deep, where I promptly began to drown. I was trying to keep my head above water but took a lot in. I was struggling for my life. Suddenly, a man pulled me out of the water and laid me on the bank. I don’t know where he came from. When I caught my breath, he was gone and I never saw him again. As far as I know, he was an angel who saved me.
. The rapids were roaring and a giganticrock stuck out of the center of the rapids. The rock divided the river in jalf. We did everything we could to avoid the rock, but fate took us right into it. We capsized and the current took me under the water to some underbrush. I got tangled up in this brush and was running out of air and energy. I kept trying to free myself. I thought to myself, "This is it. This is the way that I am going to die." Then I prayed to God to help me. While I was praying, I felt something tug on me and pull me to the surface. I could not believe it. I had almost given up. My friends were trying to find me. Here I was back in the canoe and wondering what had saved me. Then a peace and calmness came over me. I then realized what had saved me. I also knew that we would be safe the rest of the trip. We did not capsize the rest of the journey down the rapids.

Thanks for the contribution. Always nice to get some Mod participation. How old were you when it happened? Can you remember it clearly enough to say whether it was possible for it to not be your cousin? As in, did he save you and quickly leave, or did he come out of nowhere to save you... anything odd about it other than him not remembering it?
Remember the countless dangerous situations you went through as a child and nothing happened?
